[NWSL REWIND: Week 7] Sky Blue FC completed a sweep on its road trip to the Pacific Northwest with a 3-0 win over the winless Seattle Reign to remain tied for first place with the Portland Thorns.

Sky Blue FC got goals from Lisa De Vanna, Sophie Schmid and Taylor Lytle for the win over Reign FC, its third straight shutout win of the season.

Reign FC lost Jennifer Ruiz with a red card in the 60th minute -- the first red card in NWSL history.

-- Christine Sinclair and Alex Morgan each scored a goal as Thorns FC defeated the Washington Spirit 2-0 before a crowd of 12,474 at Jeld-Wen Field on Sunday afternoon.

Morgan's goal was her fourth of the season, tying her for the league lead with Boston's Sydney Leroux and FC Kansas City's Mexican international Renae Cuellar.

-- Cuellar and U.S. national team veteran Lauren Cheney scored to give FC Kansas City a 2-0 win over Breakers in front of 4,362 fans at Shawnee Mission District Stadium.

Cuellar has now scored in four of five NWSL games, and her four goals are tied for the league lead with Boston's Sydney Leroux.

The loss was the first of the season for the Breakers, who entered the weekend as the lone unbeaten team in the NWSL.
