The North Carolina Courage comes to Providence Park today to take on the Thorns. The last time these two teams faced off in Portland was in the semifinals of the 2016 playoffs, a rollercoaster of a game that ended with the Thorns' crushing overtime elimination to the then-Western New York Flash.

This is the first of three home games for the Thorns, which, if they can pull off a result today against a very good Courage side, should put them in a good position to start turning this mediocre season around.
