All Star Game Week Diary: Portland Thorns vs Houston Dash
It’s MLS All Star Game week and G4S is here for all of the action–events both at Providence Park and all around town. One benefit of being in Portland this week is getting to see the Thorns take on the Houston Dash in a 1-0 victory.
Beyond it being a great home victory in front of the home crowd, the game was a record-setter for attendance, the 19,123 fans in Providence Park setting an NWSL record. It was an incredible experience to witness, with the Rose City Riveters leading the stadium in amazingly raucous cheers.
If the rest of the country follows the lead of teams like the Portland Thorns, women’s professional soccer has a bright future in this country.
