Thorns FC's Katherine Reynolds and Angela Salem on their long friendship | Breaking Lines | June 11, 2019
They first played together in 2011, in the last season of Women's Professional Soccer. Since then, Thorns FC players Katherine Reynolds and Angela Salem have been teammates four more times, with their travels together taking them to Atlanta, Western New York, Newcastle (Australia) and Portland. From sharing a house with four teammates while playing the Beat, Reynolds and Salem have kept finding each other over a decade in soccer, with Salem taking part in Reynolds' wedding last fall.
On this edition of Breaking Lines, we talk to the two Thorns about their time in the game, women's soccer progress over the last decade, the importance of players like them in stabilizing our domestic league, and what each friend things the world should remember about the other.
