Thorns edge Wave 2-1, face Current for NWSL championship

The Portland Thorns will play the Kansas City Current for the National Women’s Soccer League championship next weekend in Washington, closing out a turbulent and emotionally taxing 10th season.

Crystal Dunn came off the bench and scored in stoppage time to give the Thorns a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Wave at Portland’s Providence Park in the first of two semifinal matches on Sunday.

Dunn, who also plays for the U.S. national team, has been easing her way back after giving birth to a son five months ago.

In the other semifinal, Alexis Loera and Kristen Hamilton scored in the Current’s 2-0 victory over the top-seeded OL Reign.
