OL Reign and Portland Thorns play to a scoreless draw in Portland

It’s the first regular-season meeting between OL Reign and Portland Thorns FC, and given the date on the calendar, we can call it Cascadia the 13th. And wouldn’t you know it, something strange happened right from the start as a live event of professional bull riding overran on CBS Sports Network, causing most fans to miss out on the first 20 minutes of the match.

On the field, however, despite having played a very congested schedule to start off 2022, OL Reign were still able to play up to the occasion of another meeting with the rivals, weather spells of attack at their door, and put some threats on Portland’s goal.
