Portland Thorns win the NWSL.
Thorns advance to NWSL final with win.
KOIN 6 News Staff PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) Portland Thorns goalie Adrianna Franch got off the plane and saw the tweets. There were photos and a singular message from the Thorns fans: we’re here and we’re waiting.
“And we’re like, ‘We’re coming!'” Franch said.
Once the Thorns players who won the National Women’s Soccer League Championship on Saturday with a 1 0 win over North Carolina Courage got outside, then the party began at the Portland Airport.
The Thorns, who enjoy the biggest crowds in the league and have arguably the best roster, captured the title on the basis of a Lindsey Horan goal in the 50th minute, the only score of the match.
Thorns coach Mark Parsons, knowing how good his fans are, expected a big turnout.
“I knew the best fans in the world would be out here to welcome us home, but I could’ve never imagined something like this,” Parsons said. “This is incredible.”
