Jess Fishlock scored in the first minute but it wasn’t enough to give Seattle a road win Saturday night in Portland. Allie Long tied the game in the 82nd minute for Portland as the Thorns and Reign battled to a 2-2 draw in front of 16,160 fans at Providence Park. It was the 14th all-time meeting between the Pacific Northwest rivals.

“This is like our El Clásico,” Long said, in postgame comments distributed by the Thorns. “It’s a battle and every 50-50, it’s not necessarily player versus player, it’s more like Portland versus Seattle every time. It’s good.”

Fishlock’s opening goal came just 58 seconds into the game, a stunning right-footed shot from about 30 yards out that beat Portland goalkeeper Adrianna Franch.

In the 36th minute, a Fishlock own goal tied the game for Portland, but defender Merritt Mathias gave the Reign the lead again just three minutes later.

In the 82nd minute, Portland defender Meghan Klingenberg collected an attempted Seattle clearance and served a ball into the box that Long headed home to make it 2-2. The assist was Klingenberg’s first as a member of the Thorns, in her second year with the squad.

Portland forward Christine Sinclair had a chance to win the game in the 90th minute as a loose ball in the box found her open near the penalty spot, but midfielder Lindsay Elston, a second half substitute, cleared the shot off the goal line after it beat Reign goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer.
