Portland Thorns FC (9-4-4, 31 points) moved into second place in the NWSL with a road win over the Chicago Red Stars in front of a crowd of 4,934 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois. The Thorns have won four straight games.

The Red Stars dropped to third place with the loss (8-4-5, 29 points). It’s the first loss at home this season for Chicago.

Portland jumped out to an early lead, scoring in just the 3rd minute. Midfielder Lindsey Horan played a long ball over the top that Hayley Raso ran onto the end of and pushed past Red Stars goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher for the 1-0 lead.

The Thorns doubled the lead in the 9th minute with a goal from Christine Sinclair after a well worked build up. Raso started the play, springing Amandine Henry, making an overlapping run into the box, with a nice pass. Henry sent a low cross into the middle of the area where Dagný Brynjarsdóttir passed it back to Sinclair. The captain hit it into the back of the net with a right-footed shot for her fifth goal of the season.

But Chicago would answer, equalizing before halftime.

In the 16th minute, Alyssa Mautz took a strike from distance that Thorns goalkeeper Adrianna Franch made a great save but it hit off the crossbar and right to Christen Press, who was there to clean up the rebound for her ninth goal of the season.

Red Stars midfielder Sofia Huerta scored in the 38th minute to make it 2-2. Defender Sam Johnson sent a long cross into the box that was collected by Julie Ertz, in the middle of a trio of Thorns defenders. Ertz persisted though, and was able to push the ball to Huerta. Huerta then dribbled around some pressure, and sent a right-footed shot to the near post that beat Franch. The goal was Huerta’s fifth of the season.

The Thorns game-winner came in the 55th minute on a free kick that was set up by Arin Gilliland receiving a yellow card for a foul on Ashleigh Sykes. Defender Meghan Klingenberg sent the free kick into the box towards the penalty spot where Emily Sonnett headed it past Naeher to make it 3-2.

Red Stars midfielder Danielle Colaprico left the game in the 62nd minute with an apparent injury to her left arm after being fouled by Tyler Lussi. Colaprico was replaced in the match by Jen Hoy.

Red Stars forward Yuki Nagasato made her NWSL debut in the game, entering as a sub in the 59th minute. The newest Red Star was removed from the disabled list earlier this week as she returned from a knee injury. She signed with the Red Stars on May 24.

Both teams will play on Wednesday on a short rest. The Red Stars will host Seattle Reign FC and the Thorns will visit FC Kansas City.
