The Thorns Prediction Game

Matchday 18. Red Stars at night, Thorns delight. For the first time, the Thorns won in Cary! The Courage were the sloppier of the two teams, as most of the “big stars” on the pitch had poor outings. Sophia Smith did not look the gift horse in the mouth and buried the deciding goal. Two […]

Matchday 17, take two. Carolina on our mind. The Thorns dropped a second 2-1 loss to the Reign. Aside from the disappointment, this means that OL Reign will have the tiebreaker on Portland should it come to that, which it might. Two players predicted a Reign victory, both with the correct score. Daniel Stratton wins […]

Matchday 15: Gotham Returns A very late goal by Morgan Weaver gave the Thorns a 1-0 win over Olympic Lyon, and the associated “Best-club-in-the-world (haha)” WICC trophy. Two of our prediction game players had a Thorns win and Weaver goal. Constant Weeder took honors with a wild prediction which somewhat resembled the actual game-winning goal […]

WICC Day One: Houston yet again The Thorns extracted a point, coming from behind to draw the Pride 1-1. Roses predicted that exact scoreline and also provided a wild prediction play-by-play that was almost prophetically accurate. For the first time, we had three players get skunked (dang that Jodie Taylor – why didn’t she do […]

Matchday 13: Back to the steambath The Thorns beat Washington 1-0 as Olivia Moultrie registered her first start and dished a lovely cross for Charley to head home. Daniel Stratton guessed a Moultrie assist and was this week’s winner, after getting shut out last time. Cap’n Sinc socks with gold medals earned 4-4-2 the two-point […]

Matchday 12: Ms. Smith Goes to Washington KC NWSL remains winless to nobody’s particular surprise, falling to the Thorns 2-0. “Own Goal” retook the league lead in the Golden Boot race. All of our predictors called the shutout win, but none called for an Everett goal (or an own goal). Constant Weeder takes honors for […]

Matchday 12: KC Barbeque Houston’s season-long home unbeaten streak ended as Sophia Smith scored in the 32nd second and the Thorns made it stand up. This was happy news for most our our predictors, as 1-0 with a Smith goal as the most popular guess (p.s. official scoring has the goal unassisted – bummer for […]
