Sky Blue FC and Portland Thorns FC tie 1-1

Sky Blue FC are still in search of their first win

Sky Blue FC scored late, but it wasn’t enough to get them their first win of the season as they tied the Portland Thorns FC 1-1 at Providence Park on Wednesday night. The result came in front of a season-high 18,237 fans in Portland.

The loss drops Sky Blue FC to 0-9-3 (3 points) on the season, the longest winless streak to start the season in league history, surpassing the previous record set by the 2013 Seattle Reign, who went 12 games before earning their first win.

The Thorns are now 5-4-5 with 20 points, and holding onto the No. 4 spot in the NWSL standings.

The Thorns took the lead at the end of the first half on a header goal from Lindsey Horan, her sixth score of the season. After Carli Lloyd fouled Horan to set up a free kick from about 40 yards out on the left wing, Meghan Klingenberg served the set piece into the box. Christine Sinclair headed it forward and Horan finished it. The assist is Sinclair’s league-leading fifth of the season.

Sinclair finished the match with seven chances created and an 82.9% passing accuracy. Horan took six total shots in the game, three on target. She also had a team-high 106 touches and 82 pass attempts (78% accuracy).

The Thorns dominated possession in the match, 58.8% to 41.2% and took 10 total shots in the first half. They had a string of three great chances on goal early. First, Sinclair had a shot blocked. Then Ana-Maria Crnogorčević had her shot go wide. Finally, Andressinha‘s shot curled wide left in the 23rd minute.

Sky Blue FC tied the match in the 77th minute when Lloyd converted a penalty kick for her second goal of the season. Celeste Boureille was called for a foul on Lloyd in the box, and Lloyd stepped up to take the spot kick. Lloyd hit hard and to the left side of the goal — past a diving Thorns goalkeeper Adrianna Franch, who went the right way, but just couldn’t stop the shot.

Sky Blue FC kept pushing for a game-winner late, and had a few chances at it. In the 81st minute, Shea Groom had an opening, but hit her shot high over the bar. Groom got another chance in the 87th minute after some nice moves in the box by Lloyd, but Franch made a huge save with her knee to preserve the draw for the Thorns.

The Thorns were without Emily Menges and Tobin Heath in the game. Both were late scratches.

The Thorns will next head to Seattle to take on the Reign on Saturday night, their third game in eight days. Sky Blue FC heads to Rio Tinto Stadium to face Utah Royals FC on Saturday night.
