The top of the table Cascadia clash could prove to be the match that decides the NWSL Shield winner.

SOCCER: APR 21 NWSL Challenge Cup - OL Reign at Portland Thorns FC

Portland Thorns FC host OL Reign in Providence Park with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PST. One point separates the first-place Thorns and the second-place Reign in the NWSL standings. This Cascadia clash has significant implications in the race for the NWSL Shield.

Portland beat the Reign 2-0 in the 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup but the Thorns have lost twice to the Reign in the NWSL regular season. The Reign defeated the Portland Thorns 2-1 in Providence Park and at Lumen Field. Portland have dropped points in three straight matches for the first time this season and will need to turn it around tonight if they hope to win the NWSL Shield.
