PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Thorns FC announced today that the club has signed forward Simone Charley, midfielder Emily Ogle and defender Madison Pogarch to the supplemental roster. 

In addition, forward Hayley Raso has received her green card and will no longer occupy an international roster spot, while midfielders Andressinha and Angela Salem have been added to the active roster ahead of Portland’s match on the road against the Orlando Pride on May 11. Additionally, forwards Ifeoma Onumonu and Mallory Weber have been waived.

“We appreciate all of Ifeoma’s and Mallory’s contributions during their time with the club,” said Gavin Wilkinson, general manager and president of soccer for Thorns FC. “They have been terrific teammates and true professionals, and we wish both of them the best.” 

Charley, 24, played four seasons at Vanderbilt University (2013-15, 2017), tallying 25 goals and 18 assists in 76 career matches for the Commodores. In 2015, Charley was named first-team All-South Region and second-team All-South Eastern Conference, while earning first-team All-SEC honors and second-team All-South Region accolades in 2014.

In four seasons at Penn State, Ogle appeared in 100 career matches (100 starts), recording 20 goals and 21 assists, while helping lead the team to a NCAA National Championship in 2015. As a senior in 2018, Ogle started and played 25 games for the Nittany Lions, registering six goals and five assists while earning United Soccer Coaches second-team All-America honors, Big Ten Midfielder of the Year and first-team All-Big Ten accolades. 

Pogarch, 21, played her final collegiate season at Rutgers University in 2018 after three seasons (2015-17) at Central Michigan University.
