Heavy rain and lightning at the Maryland Soccerplex tonight caused the NWSL game between the Washington Spirit and Sky Blue FC to be rescheduled.

Multiple lines of storms passed through the area forcing a 90-minute delay, during which both teams passed the time by playing baskeball in the gym adjacent to the stadium. At 8:30, with the storms having left standing water in some areas on the field, it was announced that the game would be played Sunday morning. The Maryland Soccerplex has an 11:00pm curfew, so the match would have had to start at or around 9:00pm in order to to play a full 90 minutes. Accounting for the time required for both teams to warm up, it would have been difficult to do all of that by 11:00. All tickets for the match tonight will be honored tomorrow.
