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

It’s another Cascadia battle for OL Reign, as the Tacoma club heads to Portland for a match today against the Thorns. The game kicks off at 3 PM PT and will air on CBS Sports Network for fans in the U.S. and Canada and Twitch for international viewers.

Portland is coming into the match hot, having just taken down the Chicago Red Stars 5-0 last weekend. They are a vertical team that likes to get forward as quickly as possible. After a frustrating performance against the Thorns in the Challenge Cup, OL Reign will be looking to keep things tighter this afternoon.

Portland has weapons all over the field, but the Reign are hungry to prove themselves. Let’s hope this is a fun match today.

What to Watch

  • Early energy and aggression
  • Disrupt in the midfield
  • Defend in transition
