SAMANTHA MEWIS NAMED TO USWNT ROSTER FOR SEPTEMBER MATCHES

Flash Midfielder will Join National Team in Columbus and Atlanta

 

ROCHESTER, NY (September 8, 2016) – United States Women’s National Team Head Coach Jill Ellis has named the 21-player roster for the team’s two matches against Thailand and the Netherlands, and Western New York Flash midfielder Samantha Mewis was named to the roster.

The USWNT will play Thailand at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus on September 15, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Following that match, the team will travel to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to take on the Netherlands on September 18, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. ET on FS1.

“We are really looking forward to both of these matches,” Ellis said. “These first two games will all be players who were at the Olympics and then in October, we’ll really start to focus on the new cycle. One of the most important things in this first game against Thailand is to celebrate Heather O’Reilly’s wonderful career and honor her with a send-off befitting her tremendous contribution to our program. I am certain the fans and our players and will make sure it’s a very special day.”

Tickets for both games are on sale through ussoccer.com and by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Groups of 20 or more can obtain an order form at ussoccer.com.

The Flash will travel to Portland, OR, to face the Portland Thorns on Sunday, September 11, at 9:30 p.m. ET at Providence Park. The game will be broadcasted on FS1.
