Portland takes on North Carolina for the third and final time in 2018 this Sunday in Cary. Portland is at close to full health, with just Katherine Reynolds and Midge Purce still on the injury report. With a win, the Thorns could jump into second place, while a loss or a draw could drop them down to fourth, depending on the results of Orlando-Sky Blue and Seattle-Washington.
