THORNS FC TO PLAY ON FOX SOCCER The NWSL and FOX Sports Media Group recently announced a national television broadcast schedule consisting of six regular-season matches and three playoff games. Portland Thorns FC are featured in consecutive weeks on FOX Soccer in regular-season home matches on Sunday, July 28, against the Chicago Red Stars and Sunday, Aug. 4, against FC Kansas City at JELDWEN Field. The times of those matches have been changed to accommodate national television. The match on July 28 is now at 4 p.m. (PT) and the game on Aug. 4 (a doubleheader with the Timbers Reserves) is at 5:30 p.m. (PT). Kicking off the NWSL coverage for FOX Soccer Seattle Reign FC play host to the Washington Spirit on Sunday, July 14, at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Wash. The schedule of regular-season matches ends on Aug. 17 as the Western New York Flash square off against the Boston Breakers at Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester, N.Y. Following the conclusion of the regular season, both NWSL playoffs semifinal matches will be broadcast on Aug. 24, followed by the league’s championship game on Aug. 31.

Portland Thorns FC and the Boston Breakers square off for the first time during the inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season on Saturday at JELD-WEN Field. The game is the only match between the two clubs in the Rose City, as Thorns FC will travel to play Boston in each of the next two meetings (July 21; Aug. 7). Thorns FC enters Saturday’s match coming off a two-game road trip that saw the club earn an 0-1-1 record with a scoreless draw against Sky Blue FC (June 22) and a 2-0 loss at FC Kansas City (June 30). Portland is 2-1-1 in its last five games and currently sits in second place in the NWSL standings. Boston snapped a five-game winless streak on June 30 with a 3-2 win against league leaders Sky Blue FC and followed that up with a come-from-behind 1-1 draw at Seattle Reign FC on Wednesday. Head coach Lisa Cole’s squad is on the outside looking in of the fifth, and final, spot to the NWSL playoffs with the second half of the season left.

AMONG LEAGUE LEADERS Through 13 games in the inaugural NWSL season, several Thorns FC players rank among league leaders in several statistical categories. Thorns FC forward Alex Morgan leads the league in both shots (43) and shots on goal (26), despite missing two matches while on international duty. Morgan’s team-high five goals ranks tied for fourth overall in the NWSL. As a team, Portland is fifth in goals (18), but first in goal defense - conceding a league-low 11 goals in 13 games.

HOLDING A LEAD Thorns FC are the only team in the NWSL that has yet to concede a lead this season. Portland, 8-0-0 when scoring first, is the lone remaining squad that has not allowed an opponent to come back for a tie or win in a match.

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.
