PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland’s newest sports franchise played its first game Saturday.
The Portland Thorns went up against Kansas City.
They were down one-to-nothing at the half — but came back to tie it up.
Even with a draw this was a historic game. Not only was this the first match in the Thorns’ franchise, it also was the inaugural game of the newly formed National Women’s Soccer League.
The eight-team league was formed in November.
The Thorns take on the Seattle Reign FC next Sunday at Jeld-Wen Field in southwest Portland.
