[NWSL REWIND: Week 2] Former U.S. greats Mia Hamm and Julie Foudy were among those in attendance as a crowd of more than 16,000 watched as the Portland Thorns defeat the Seattle Reign, 2-1, in their NWSL home opener.

Alex Morgan and Marian Dougherty scored her for the Thorns, the preseason favorites, in their win in front of 16,479 fans at Jeld-Wen Field.

-- U.S. national team star Abby Wambach fell to the ground with what appeared to be a possible concussion at the end of the Western New York Flash's game at the Washington Spirit after earlier being hit in the face with the ball from close distance, and she needed medical help at the game and will be evaluated on Monday. The game, which ended 1-1, drew a sellout crowd of  4,569 fans.

Australian Samantha Kerr had put the Flash ahead in the 85th minute, but Washington drew even less than two minutes later on Canadian midfielder Diana Matheson's goal from the penalty spot. The 1-1 tie was the fourth in five NWSL games.
