OVERLAND, Kan. — The Portland Thorns tied Kansas City 1-1 Saturday in the first game of the National Women's Soccer League.

Portland forward Christine Sinclair hit a penalty kick in the 67th minute to erase a 1-0 deficit.

Kansas City scored in the third minute against Portland goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc.

The Thorns finished the game with a 4-3 edge in shots on goal before an announced crowd of 6,784.
