Women’s Football NWSL game moved again due to wildfire smoke

A NATIONAL Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) game between the Portland Thorns and the OL Reign has been postponed again until the end of the month because of poor air quality caused by wildfires.

The game in Portland had already been moved from Saturday to last night because of smoke from the wildfires that have been raging across the West of the United States. The forecast does not call for improving conditions in the next several days so the game was postponed again until September 30.

Two-time Portland Classic winner Brooke Henderson also said on Monday that she was withdrawing from the LPGA tournament at Columbia Edgewater Country Club because of smoky conditions.

The Portland Classic is set for September 17-20, but the course and practice facilities were closed on Monday because of the smoke.
