Portland Thorns FC vs. Sky Blue FC Match Thread [7:30 pm]

New, 67 comments

The Portland Thorns return home to face off against Sky Blue FC, the second place team in the league.

The Portland Thorns are finally returning home to play their second game at Jeld-Wen Field. After three away games, it should come as a welcome respite for the Thorns. In addition, it would appear as if they're sticking around the area for quite a while. Aside from a single away game up to Seattle (obviously not very far) they've got 5 home games all lined up. But it all starts tonight against the New Jersey side: Sky Blue FC. Should be fun!

Here are the details you need:

Final Thoughts

Sky Blue FC should not be seen as a team to get pushed over. While they don't have an unbeaten streak like the Thorns do, they're certainly no slouches. It would do the Timbers well to remember that much at the very least. That said, SBFC have had a much easier schedule so far this season. Where the Thorns have had a single home game, SBFC has had 3 and, in fact, their singular loss of the season came during an away game against the Washington Spirit. Bottom line, the Thorns can't afford to take their winning streak for granted.
