The NWSL playoffs are here! Tune in bright and early as the Thorns take on FCKC.

The Portland Thorns have traveled east to take on FC Kansas City in the first ever NWSL playoff match. The Thorns are taking on a team that beat them twice in the regular season in route to running away with the inaugural awards, including defender of the year, goalkeeper of the year, rookie of the year, and the golden boot. It will be a hard fought game and definitely worth tuning in to.

Final Thoughts

The Thorns are just as talented as they were at the beginning of the season when everyone was predicting that they would be the team to beat. Alex Morgan is listed as questionable, but any team with Christine Sinclair and Tobin Heath in the lineup is capable of getting a win anywhere. The team chemistry questions that plagued the final weeks of the season will hopefully have been dispelled in the Thorns' season ending win over the Seattle Reign and we will see the offensive juggernaut that beat FCKC 4-3 early in the season back on the pitch today for a run at the NWSL Cup.
