The Portland Thorns take on their neighbors to the north this even as they travel to take on the Seattle Reign. The Thorns are still struggling to get out of their recent skid, having gone the last three matches without a win. As of 5:50 the Western New York Flash are up 2-0, all but guaranteeing the Thorns an away match next Saturday, so this game will likely determine if the Thorns face Sky Blue FC or FC Kansas City.
Here are all the details you need:
Watch it on: Embedded below.
Kick off: 8:00 pm at Starfire Sports Complex.
Portland Thorns FC: 35 points (3rd Place).
Seattle Reign: 18 points (7th Place).

At this point this game is for the chance to avoid FC Kansas City in the first round of the playoffs. The Thorns have been slated for their recent efforts, but this is a chance to stand back up and regain some confidence before the playoffs. There is no reason for this team not to win with the level of talent on tap.
