Favorite NWSL Games — Player & Broadcaster

In episode #286, Jen “The Keeper” Cooper catches up with two NWSL broadcasters to hear about their favorite NWSL games — Jordan Angeli offers the player’s perspective and Josh Tolle gives that of the play-by-play announcer.

In the first chat, current NWSL announcer Jordan Angeli shares with Jen the stories behind her three favorite NWSL games that she played in — two in the 2014 season for Washington Spirit and one in 2015 for Western NY Flash.

Then Jen catches up with play-by-play announcer Josh Tolle to hear his picks for the three most memorable games he called last season. FYI, Josh  called more NWSL games in 2019 than anyone else!
