Portland To Host NWSL Championship Match

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The National Women's Soccer League will hold its championship match at Providence Park in Portland, Oregon.

In the league's first two seasons, the championship match was hosted by the higher-seeded team. Commissioner Jeff Plush said Monday the league's owners decided before the season to move the championship to a predetermined location.

The Oct. 1 championship will be televised by FOX Sports 1.

Providence Park is home to the NWSL's Portland Thorns, who lead the league in home attendance with an average of more than 15,000 fans a game.

A match last month between the Thorns and the Seattle Reign drew a sellout of 21,144, the largest crowd in league history and the second-largest, stand-alone crowd for a women's professional soccer game in the United States.

Washington Offensive Lineman Dexter Charles Retires

SEATTLE (AP) - Washington offensive lineman Dexter Charles has retired due to a lingering knee injury, a significant blow to an already thin offensive line.

Washington made the announcement on Monday. Charles was a fifth-year senior and was expected to be the Huskies' starting left guard heading into the season.

Charles had started 30 games over the past three seasons - most of them at left guard - and was the only full-time starter on the offensive line returning from last season. Charles sat out spring practice with an undisclosed injury and has battled shoulder problems throughout his Washington career.

Washington coach Chris Petersen says the team is disappointed the injury won't allow Charles to play his senior season. Petersen says Charles has expressed interest in the coaching profession.
