[NWSL: Week 3] The NWSL's midweek slate of games begins Wednesday when Seattle, a 3-0 winner in its first game, hosts Washington, which is coming off its first win of the season. They finished seventh and eighth -- far off the pace -- in 2013 but have made significant upgrades this season.

Having picked up Sydney Leroux from Boston and Kim Little from Arsenal Ladies and having Hope Solo (sidelined at the beginning of 2013 following wrist surgery) and Megan Rapinoe (on loan at Lyon until June 2013) available from the start of the season, Seattle instantly has become a contender for the 2014 title and did not disappoint in its opener, a 3-0 win over the Breakers.

The Spirit also made upgrades in the offseason, signing Yael Averbuch, who had played in Sweden, and picking another Tar Heel, Crystal Dunn, with the first selection in the College Draft.

    Is the SEA-WAS game being televised? On what channel?

    I see nothing about this SEA-WAS game on 4/23 @ 7pm PDT! It's not on the SoundersFC website, nor can I find it anywhere. Is there something going on? Or is this a mistake?
