PORTLAND, Ore. — Canada captain Christine Sinclair recorded career regular-season goal No. 55 for Portland as the Thorns blanked the Kansas City Current 3-0 in their NWSL season opener Saturday.

Morgan Weaver and Sophia Smith also scored at Providence Park as Portland improved to 9-0-0 in home openers.

Sinclair, who is the world’s all-time leading scorer with 189 international goals, made it 2-0 in the 34th minute, hammering home a left-footed shot from close range.

The 38-year-old from Burnaby, B.C., has scored in back-to-back home openers, and in three out of the last four home openers (2018, 2021, 2022).
