Ten matches in to the 2016 season, the Portland Thorns are still undefeated, riding a strong attack and dominant defense to the top of the table. Now the Thorns are headed to the Sunshine State to take on expansion side Orlando Pride and former Thorns player Alex Morgan.
With the team about to lose a number of national team players for the 2016 Summer Olympics, the Thorns will be looking to get the most out of their star studded lineup.
"On the other side of the ball, the Thorns have the league's best defense, allowing only 5 goals on the season. Anchored by the centerback tandem of Emily Menges and Emily Sonnett, the Thorns have allowed 1 goal over the past 360 matches, with goalkeepers Adrianna Franch and Michelle Betos among the league leaders in clean sheets, with 3 and 2 respectively."
