Well, here we are. The Portland Thorns have made their way to the first ever NWSL Final where they will take on the Western New York Flash tonight in Rochester, NY. The Thorns stumbled at times this season and at times looked like they might not make it to the championship that was forecast for them since the franchise's inception at the end of 2012. Now, though, they look like a team firing on all cylinders, drawing inspiration from their stars but relying on every member of the team to get the job done.
