The Portland Thorns are back in Portland today and are looking to get back on top of the NWSL after falling al the way to 5th place in the league standings following an uninspired road win against the Boston Breakers. Their opponents will be another team punching below their weight in the Western New York Flash, but, while the Flash have lost players to injury, the Thorns have gotten in new players as Alex Morgan, Veronica Boquette, and Stephanie Catley are all with the team and on track to see the first time this year.
