    Christine Sinclair enjoys scoring against her rivals. In another edition of the Cascadia rivalry, the Portland Thorns FC took a trip up north to face off with OL Reign. Portland notched the victory, 2-1, which secured their top spot in the National Women’s Soccer League standings.

    With a warped, unusual season, clubs picked local businesses to play for in the Verizon Community Shield, during the NWSL Fall Series. The winner — in this case, the Thorns — won $25,000 for their business of choice, Mimi Fresh Tees. The second place team will win $15,000 for their business, while third place will have $10,000 go to their business of choice.

    Christine Sinclair is the person to thank for the victory. Both of her goals against OL Reign came on penalty kicks. In addition, both penalties were given up by Amber Brooks of the Reign.

    Simone Charley earned the first penalty. In the second half, Lindsey Horan secured the second call.

    For the Reign, Brooks did make up for her first penalty giveaway. In the 46th minute, to open the second half, Brooks scored by tapping in a shot from Shirley Cruz at the top of the box. However, it wasn’t enough for the Reign to draw or take any sort of lead against their rivals.
