The Portland Thorns play their final home match of the 2016 regular season today, hosting the Western New York Flash at Providence Park. With a playoff spot already locked up, the Thorns need a result to guarantee the franchise’s first-ever home playoff match.
“Thorns FC (10-5-3, 35pts) is playing its third home game in eight days Sunday, but have ridden a hot streak of form after losing three of their previous four games before last Sunday’s 5-1 win over the Boston Breakers. Portland has scored eight goals in their last two matches and have outscored visiting teams 20-6 at Providence Park. Nadia Nadim and Allie Long have scored three goals each in that span, while Christine Sinclair has scored a goal in consecutive games.”
