The NWSL Challenge Cup continues Wednesday, with four clubs facing off in the tournament’s semifinals.

OL Reign vs. Washington Spirit

Wednesday, May 4, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network

OL Reign and the Washington Spirit will face off in a rematch of their Sunday regular-season matchup, only this time with a spot in the NWSL Challenge Cup final on the line. In their regular-season opener, the Spirit downed OL Reign 2-1, with Ashley Sanchez and Ashley Hatch inking their names on the scoresheet.

OL Reign will have a hill to climb after losing home-field advantage due to scheduling conflicts at Lumen Field, with the semifinal match now to be played at Audi Field in Washington DC.

Kansas City vs. North Carolina Courage

Wednesday, May 4, at 8:30 p.m. ET on Paramount+

Kansas City and North Carolina both enter their Challenge Cup contest on the heels of season-opening losses, the Current’s to Portland and the Courage’s to Angel City.

North Carolina looked like the stronger team throughout the Challenge Cup group stage, with the club’s attack firing on all cylinders. Kansas City’s defense will have to be ironclad to keep the Courage off the scoresheet and keep themselves in the game.
