Ottawa Fury 3, Sounders Women 2, W-League semifinal

Despite a furious late rally, the Sounders Women couldn’t overcome a three-goal deficit and lost 3-2 to the undefeated Ottawa Fury in a W-League semifinal Friday at Starfire Stadium.

League MVP Mallory Outerbridge scored two goals and Courtney Wetzel added another for Ottawa, which grabbed a 3-0 lead early in the second half.

Seattle fought back on a 79th-minute penalty kick by Jocelyn Charette. The hosts then pulled within a single goal when Justi Baumgardt-Yamada scored with two minutes to go.

The Fury advanced to Sunday’s championship game at 4 p.m. against the Atlanta Silverbacks, a 3-1 winner against the Vancouver Whitecaps in Friday’s early semifinal. The Sounders Women and Silverbacks will play for third place in a consolation match at 12:30 p.m.
