BOSTON – The Portland Thorns fell 2-1 to the Boston Breakers in New England Wednesday after forward Alex Morgan was hurt in the first 10 minutes of the game.
Morgan, one of the biggest stars in U.S. soccer, collided with Boston’s Jazmyne Avant while attacking the ball. She was carted off the pitch in a stretcher.
Morgan reportedly sustained a left knee injury and will have more tests Thursday.
Boston’s Heather O’Reilly scored the game winner in the 84th minute to beat the Thorns.
