PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Thorns will take on the Houston Dash at Providence Park earlier than originally scheduled Saturday due to the excessive heat.

The National Women’s Soccer League announced Tuesday that the match would be moved to 11 a.m. It had been scheduled for 12:30 p.m.

The forecast is calling for temperatures to hit 95 degrees Saturday. The earlier start time will allow for lower on-field and in-stadium temperatures earlier in the day, according to the Thorns.

Tickets are available online.

The Timbers are scheduled to face the LA Galaxy at 1 p.m. Sunday at Providence Park. The high temperature for Sunday is expected to be 90 degrees.
