The Portland Thorns are in Salt Lake City today to face the NWSL’s newest club, the Utah Royals. Some of Portland’s injury problems have been resolved—Meghan Klingenberg is back—but others, including AD Franch’s (meniscus tear) and Emily Menges’s (stress reaction). Meanwhile, Bella Geist is now out with a quad strain, leaving Britt Eckerstrom as Portland’s only healthy keeper [edit: Portland announced that they had signed Adelaide Gay as a goalkeeper replacement player this morning]. On the plus side, Andressinha and Ellie Carpenter arrived this week and should be available.
