NWSL WEEK 8 SCHEDULE Saturday, June 1

TIME (PT)

Chicago Red Stars at Portland Thorns FC Boston Breakers at Sky Blue FC

2 p.m. 4 p.m.

AMONG LEAGUE LEADERS Thorns FC rank tied for the NWSL lead in goals scored (12) and place second in assists (7), shots (95) and shots on goal (49). Tied on points (19) with Sky Blue FC for the league’s top spot, Thorns FC are the most fouled team in the league, suffering 80 fouls in eight games.

AMATEUR CALL-UPS Due to the absence of four national team players, Thorns FC called up three amateur players for Saturday’s match against Chicago. Former Portland State University goalkeeper Cris Lewis (2006-09) and midfielder Amanda Dutra (2009-12) and former Baylor defender Carlie Davis (2009-12) join the club for the game against the Red Stars. Lewis holds PSU career records in saves (375), wins (24) and shutouts (17) while Dutra is the school’s all-time leader in assists (16). Davis, a key defender for the Bears, helped guide the team to the third round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament and school records for most wins (19), shutouts (13) and fewest goals allowed (14) during her senior season. All three amateur players were part of preseason training camp with Thorns FC, while Lewis and Dutra have regularly trained with the club during the season.

MATCH DAY PREVIEW Saturday’s match marks the third of four meetings between Portland and Chicago during the inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season. Riding a two-game winning streak, Thorns FC enter the match without conceding a goal in 190 minutes. Sky Blue FC scored the game-winning goal in the 80th minute of a 1-0 win against Thorns FC on May 16 and since then Portland has earned two straight shutouts. The Red Stars, who have played two fewer games than Thorns FC, scored first on May 24 at the Western New York Flash on a 52nd-minute goal by Lori Chalupny, but the Flash scored twice in the next 15 minutes to extend Chicago’s winless streak to six games. The Red Stars have struggled offensively this season, but did earn a late 1-1 road draw on May 8 against Sky Blue FC as midfielder Alyssa Mautz notched the equalizer in second-half stoppage time.

LAST TIME AGAINST CHICAGO Chicago has hosted Thorns FC twice this season at Benedictine Sports Complex in Lisle, Ill. During a three-game road trip, Thorns FC visited Chicago on April 27 and again on May 12. In the first meeting, second-half substitute forward Danielle Foxhoven tallied the go-ahead goal in the 70th minute, netting the rebound following forward Alex Morgan’s initial shot. Forward Christine Sinclair scored in the 81st minute for a 2-0 win as Portland earned its first road win of the season. Just two weeks later, Thorns FC traveled to Chicago and came away with another 2-0 win as Morgan (3rd minute) and midfielder Allie Long (35th minute) scored in the first half and goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc made four saves for her second shutout of the season.

HEAD COACH CINDY PARLOW CONE A U.S. Women’s National Team veteran and two-time Olympic gold medalist, Cindy Parlow Cone leads Portland Thorns FC into their inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season in 2013. She was appointed the first head coach in the club’s history on Dec. 19, 2012. One of the all-time leading goal scorers in U.S. Women’s National Team history, Cone’s playing career included a nine-year stint with the national team, a championship in the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup and gold medals at the 1996 and 2004 Olympic Games. She is the youngest player ever to win both an Olympic gold medal and a World Cup title. Due to post-concussion syndrome, she retired from the national team in 2004 with 75 goals and 35 assists in 158 appearances. A native of Memphis, Tenn., Cone, 35, spent the last six years as the assistant coach for her alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 2007-12. She helped guide the team to national championship-winning seasons in 2008, 2009 and 2012. In addition to coaching at UNC, Cindy also served as the director of coaching for senior girls programs (U-15 to U-18) at Triangle United Soccer Association in Chapel Hill, N.C., and has been a member of the U.S. U-14 and U-15 Girls National Team coaching staffs since 2010. She holds a USSF “A” License and was the only female coach to participate in the FIFA Futuro III course. Cone, a forward, began her international career with the U.S. Women’s National Team in 1996, scoring twice in her debut and contributing to an 8-1 win over Russia on Jan.14, 1996. She was named the U.S. Soccer Young Female Athlete of the Year in 1998 and was a starting forward on the highly recognized United States squad for the 1999 Women’s World Cup, scoring two goals in the tournament. The 1999 U.S. Women’s National Team was named Sports Illustrated’s 1999 Athlete of the Year. Additionally, Cone helped the U.S. Women’s National Team to a third-place finish in the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup, playing in the semifinal match against Germany held at JELD-WEN Field (then PGE Park), and a silver medal in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She, along with the other members of the 1996 Olympic team, was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 2004. Cone played in Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA) for three seasons with the Atlanta Beat from 2001-03, leading the team to the postseason each season. At North Carolina, Cone recorded 68 goals and 53 assists during her collegiate career from 1995-98, and is one of 10 players in the program’s history to record 40 or more goals and assists in a career. She was a four-time All-American, won the Hermann Trophy in 1997 and 1998 as the nation’s top player, was an four-time Academic All-American, and led the Tar Heels to back-to-back national titles in 1996 and 1997.

CHICAGO ROSTER MOVES On Saturday, the Red Stars will be missing starting goalkeeper Erin McLeod, defenders Carmelina Moscato and Rachel Quon (national team duty with Canada), and midfielders Shannon Boxx (injury) and Lauren Fowlkes (retired). On May 21, Chicago added a pair of 34-year-old Germans in forward Inka Grings (Germany’s Frauen Bundesliga all-time leading scorer) and defender Sonja Fuss. Both players have experience with the Germany Women’s National Team and are expected to be available for this weekend’s match. Grings ranks third all-time in scoring for Germany. To create room on the roster, the Red Stars waived forward Hanna Gilmore, a 22-year-old rookie from Baylor University and goalkeeper Jamie Forbes was added as an amateur player for Saturday’s game.

STALWART DEFENSE Along with the team’s dynamic attacking players, the Thorns FC defense has performed at a high level through the first eight games of the season. Portland is the only team that has yet to concede more than one goal in a game to an opponent this season, holding every opponent to either one or zero goals in eight games. The Thorns FC backline of Marian Dougherty, Rachel Buehler, Kathryn Williamson and Nikki Marshall with Karina LeBlanc in goal have formed consistency early in the season with all five players starting each of the team’s eight games this season. LeBlanc is tied for the NWSL lead with a 0.50 goals-against average. The Canadian Women’s National Team standout is second in the league with four shutouts and holds the second-best save percentage (88 percent). LeBlanc and Buehler, however, will miss Saturday’s match on national team duty.
