Thorsnes was the top scorer with 19 goals, and was named Young Player of the Year, and was one of the forwards in the year's team of the year. 2007 was less good, and Thorsnes finished with 6 goals. This led to a 4th place for Arna-Bjørnar.

In 2008 Giske was injured, and a lot fell on the shoulders of Thorsnes. She helped Arna-Bjørnar to a good 5th place and scored against all the top teams (apart from Røa). Thorsnes was the team's top scorer with 14 gaols. In addition to the 39 goals she had scored in the league, she also scored 11 cup goals in 10 cup games.

For the national team, Thorsnes scored her first goal against Italy at the Algarve Cup.
