Following an international break, the Portland Thorns are finally back in town for their home opener, on the heels of a 3-2 win against the Chicago Red Stars two weeks ago. Portland’s roster is still depleted, missing not just Hayley Raso and Andressinha, who are both still away on international duty, but Tobin Heath and Emily Menges, who have yet to work their way off the injury report. Mark Parsons is off the hook with the league after the club appealed his two-game suspension for an altercation with an official in the season opener and will be on the sideline for the match.
