She is one of three injured players including defender Emily Sonnett (lower back pain), and goalkeeper Adrianna Franch (menicus surgery) to make the trip.

"All three will travel," coach Mark Parsons told Oregon Live.

"The fact that we're taking all three, we feel all of them can be available, worst case by Houston."
