The Scouting Report
As the season hurdles toward its mid-August conclusion, Portland Thorns FC stand in solid position to defend its 2013 NWSL title. Last year’s champs find themselves in third place in the standings, but a strong late-season showing could give them what they need to overtake second-place FC Kansas City. This match against Houston bodes well for Portland—they’ve beaten the Dash in both of their meetings earlier this season, allowing zero goals.
Portland Thorns FC
Portland Thorns FC won the National Women’s Soccer League’s inaugural championship in 2013, but that may not have been their biggest accomplishment that year. In the run-up to the title, they amassed the league’s strongest fanbase, intimidating visiting teams while averaging over 13,000 fans in attendance. Their strong community bonds extend not just to the fans but to men’s soccer as well—the team has a fruitful affiliation with the MLS’s Portland Timbers, helping to foster a city-wide love of soccer that inspires kids to take up the game and office workers to type up sales reports without using their hands.
