While the NWSL was on hold for the week, the Thorns' internationals were on duty with their national teams.

Records were made to be broken and in 2017 Diego Valeri has taken that to heart.

Welcome to the last five games of the regular season, everyone! Last week, the Timbers got an impressive 1-0 road win against NYCFC. First, getting a shutout against even a Villa-less NYC is an accomplishment for the Timbers this year, and secondly, any win in the eastern time zone is quite a rare occurrence.
