The Portland Thorns and OL Reign traded numerous chances on a rainy Friday night at Providence Park in Portland, with nothing finding the back of the net in the National Women’s Soccer League regular season match.

The Thorns now sit at 1-0-1 on the season, allowing zero goals against in their first two games, while the Reign stacked their second consecutive draw to earn a 0-1-2 record.

Toronto native Quinn played all 90 minutes for the Reign, recording one shot.
