[NWSL REWIND: Week 7] Sky Blue FC moved into a tie for first place in the NWSL with Portland with a 1-0 win over Thorns FC on sub Taylor Lytle's goal late in the second half before 11,055 fans in Portland. The Seattle Reign slumped to 0-5-1 with a 4-2 loss at home to the Washington Spirit before 1,011 fans at Starfire Stadium.

The loss was the first for the Thorns, who had won four games in a row after opening with a tie. It left Boston as the NWSL's only unbeaten team.

The Spirit picked up its first win of the season, breaking a 2-2 tie on goals by former Florida State stars Tiffany McCarty and Tori Huster.

Canadian Diana Matheson and U.S. international Ali Krieger scored goals sandwiched between goals by Lindsey Taylor and former Stanford teammate Teresa Noyola for the Reign.

Chicago, which is idle this week, is also winless at 0-3-2.
