kGW did a piece on Amanda and what her new role means to the team.

It is a must see.

I was going to post some pretty charts, but they're too wide for a PN page. So, I'll summarize:

Every team that ever has won a national championship has had a total season goals against average of not more than 0.7 goals per game. While top teams with national championship credentials' goals against averages over time are fairly stable (Portland, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Santa Clara, Stanford), over time their "goals for" have declined.

In other words, it's overall getting harder to score goals, and a top defense is a necessary condition to being at the top, indeed more important than ever.

The Pilots' goals against average was 1.2 last year and 1.4 in 2011. This year, it is 0.8 and heading in the right direction.

Amanda got her first National team appearance today, as the u23 USWNT beat Sweden  2-1 today in the six Nations tournament in La Manga, Spain.

She came in in the second half.

She got to pick her number, which I understand will also be her number when she plays for the Reign in the NWSL soon.

If you are a UP fan, great choice.
