OL Reign flag hoisted atop Space Needle for first time as club enters playoffs

On Friday, the OL Reign hoisted the team's flag at the top of Seattle's iconic Space Needle for the first time ever.

Head Coach Laura Harvey and all three OL Reign originals, Lu Barnes, Jess Fishlock and Megan Rapinoe all took part. The celebration marks the team's 6th appearance in the NWSL playoffs.

This is the fourth consecutive trip to the semifinals for the OL Reign. A win against the KC Current would send them to the championship in Washington, D.C.
