PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Alex Morgan and Marian Dougherty each scored a goal to lead the Portland Thorns to a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Reign on Sunday.

The Thorns (1-0-1) got the first win in franchise history and drew a National Women's Soccer League record 16,479 to Jeld-Wen Field for their home opener.

Portland dominated throughout, outshooting Seattle 12-5.

The Thorns have two Olympic star forwards in Morgan and Canada's Christine Sinclair. That duo teamed up on the second goal 7 minutes into the second half.

Seattle (0-1-1) was without most of its marquee players. Goalie Hope Solo is out until late summer with a wrist injury, while midfielder Megan Rapinoe is currently playing in France and won't be available to the Reign until June.
