Julie Ertz scores, Angel City FC manages tie with Portland

Julie Ertz scored in the 78th minute to put Angel City (1-2-2) in front but finish with 3-3 tie against Portland. Ertz just recently joined the team following a long layoff from the league because of injuries and the birth of her son.

Alyssa Thompson, an 18-year-old who was drafted by Angel City out of high school, scored in the 10th minute. Portland pulled even in the 31st when Ertz fouled Portland’s Crystal Dunn in the box and Hina Sugita converted on the penalty.

Goalkeeper Bella Bixby scored in stoppage time and Portland remained undefeated to start the season.

Bixby became just the second goalkeeper ever to score in the NWSL with her backheel goal as Portland (3-0-2) scrambled in the waning moments at Portland’s Providence Park.

Morgan Weaver took a well-timed pass from Olivia Moultrie and scored from a tight angle to give the Thorns the lead in the 65th, but Katie Johnson pulled Angel City back into a tie with a header in the 74th.
