Portland wins 2-0 on the road over Sky Blue FC

The Thorns have not lost since April 22

Lindsey Horan scored her first two goals of the NWSL season as Portland Thorns FC topped Sky Blue FC 2-0 on Saturday night in front of a crowd of 2,418 at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, New Jersey.

Portland improved to 4-1-3 with 15 points and has not lost a game since April 22. Sky Blue FC fell to 4-4-1 with 13 points on the season.

Thorns goalkeeper Adrianna Franch made six saves to earn the shutout, her fifth of the season, including stopping a Sarah Killion penalty kick attempt in the 56th minute. It was the first penalty kick miss of Killion’s NWSL career. She previously had been a perfect 8 for 8.

The Thorns jumped out to an early lead thanks to a 20th minute goal from Horan.

Sky Blue defender Kayla Mills fouled Portland forward Nadia Nadim near midfield, earning a yellow card. Nadim took the ensuing free kick, sending a long ball right to the head of Horan, who headed it past Sky Blue FC goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan to put the Thorns up 1-0.

Horan doubled the score in the 42nd minute, sending a right-footed shot into the back of the net after defender Meghan Klingenberg whipped a pass into the box.
