[NWSL REWIND: Week 5] Abby Wambach scored both goals to give her three goals and an assist in two games since returning from a concussion as the Western New York Flash beat FC Kansas City on Saturday night at Sahlen Stadium in Rochester, N.Y.

Wambach scored both goals just five minute apart in the first half, but Lauren Cheney responded with a goal in the 53rd minute to pull within a goal for FCKC.

Saturday’s game also marked the season debut of Carli Lloyd, who had missed the first four Flash games of the year with a shoulder injury.

-- Sky Blue FC got first-half goals from Danesha Adams and Australian Lisa De Vanna to beat the Seattle Reign, 2-0, on Saturday.

-- On Sunday, the first-place Portland Thorns beat the Chicago Red Stars, 2-0, on goals by Alex Morgan and Allie Long to remain unbeaten.
