[NWSL REWIND: Week 3] Sky Blue FC made it two wins in two games with a 2-1 win over the Washington Spirit in front of 3,102 fans at the Maryland SoccerPlex.

Sky Blue defender Coco Goodson opened the scoring less than two minutes into the game, stunning Washington with a header off a corner kick delivered by Danesha Adams. After Diana Matheson evened the score for the Spirit, fellow Canadian Sophie Schmidt won the game for Sky Blue FC on a curling shot three minutes after the break.

-- Forwards Danielle Foxhoven and Christine Sinclair scored during an 11-minute span in the second half as the Portland Thorns earned their second straight victory with a 2-0 win over the Chicago Red Stars before 2,855 fans at Benedictine Sports Complex. Thorns FC remain unbeaten and in first place through the first three games.

-- The Boston Breakers fought back from a 1-0 deficit on a pair of goals by U.S. national team midfielder Heather O’Reilly to earn a 2-1 win over the Western New York Flash before 4,065 fans in Rochester, N.Y. The win was the first for Boston in the NWSL. Australian international Samantha Kerr had scored her second goal in as many games to give the Flash the early lead. Western New York was playing without Abby Wambach, who was sidelined as a result of a head injury sustained a week earlier.
