Portland Thorns FC travel to take on San Diego Wave FC on June 8 (7pm PT, CBS Sports Network). Here are key numbers to know about ahead of the game.


Forward Christine Sinclair’s next match will be the 150th of her NWSL career. Sinclair would become the ninth player in league history to reach this milestone, and just the fourth player to play 150 matches with the same team (Sinclair, Lauren Barnes, Jess Fishlock, Tori Huster).


Midfielder Sam Coffey and defender Meaghan Nally each have an 86% passing accuracy rate this season, higher than any other players in NWSL that have made six or more appearances in the 2022 campaign.


Forward Morgan Weaver has the second highest expected goals (excluding penalties) in the NWSL at 2.51 this season, while forward Janine Beckie ranks second in the NWSL in expected assists (1.56).


Portland’s 3-0 win over Angel City on June 3 was the team’s league-leading second win this season by three or more goals. It was also the club’s 19th all-time regular season win by at least three goals, one more than the OL Reign and North Carolina Courage for most such wins in NWSL history.


The Thorns have recorded the most shots on goal (39) in the league this season, averaging 6.5 per match. Forward Sophia Smith leads the team with 11, followed by Christine Sinclair who has eight.
