Sky Blue faced the Portland Torns. Both teams were missing their National Team Members who are getting ready for the start of the FIFA Women's World Cup, which starts on June 7 in France.
Sky Blue was without Carli Lloyd (USA) Kailen Sheridan (Canada) Estelle Johnson (Cameroon) and the Thorns were missing Tobin Heath, Adrianna Franch, Emily Sonnett, Lindsay Horan (USA), Christin Sinclair (Canada) Andressa (Brazil) Caitlin Ford, Ellie Carpenter (Australia)
Portland won the game on a Margaret Purce goal in the 69 minute. Although possession was 51-49 in favor of the Thorns, Sky Blue had difficulty setting up an offense was they were outshot 7-1
One of the nice things about attending a small venue to watch these games, was the entrance of Portland Thorns' Madison Pogarch, who is a Rutgers Student, into her first professional game. Her family was sitting a few rows in front of us. A proud moment
