Portland Thorns FC @ Chicago Red Stars Match Thread [5:00 pm]

Stacey Neve

The Portland Thorns travel to Chicago to take on the Red Stars. A win today could see them cement themselves in 1st place.

The Portland Thorns take on the Chicago Red Stars this evening. There's not much to say about either team yet, however, as we're all still waiting to see who the dominant sides are. Of course, at 4 points the Thorns are currently tied for first in the league. Still, two matches does not make a trend and, despite Chicago's singular point, they could still be a solid adversary.

Here are all the details you need:

Final Thoughts

As with the Timbers, the Portland Thorns will be searching for their first road win, albeit against a team that's not quite as dominant... or at least not yet. Truthfully, it's a bit too early in the NWSL season to know. It's worth noting that Chicago's keeper is considered one of the best. Jonanna's preview revealed that she recently stole our own keeper's starting position on the Canadian women's national team. Expect both of them to try and prove why they deserve that honor tonight.
