[NWSLSCHEDULE: Week 8]Australian Lisa De Vanna scored two goals, including a spectacular bicycle kick, and Danesha Adams added two more to lead Sky Blue FC to a 5-1 win over the Boston Breakers and take over first place in the NWSL. Midfielders Zakiya Bywaters and Jackie Santacaterina scored on either side of halftime as the Chicago Red Stars defeated Portland Thorns FC, 2-0, for their first win of the season before 12,446 fans in Portland.

De Vanna set up Adams for the first goal in the seventh minute, then scored herself seven minutes later when teammate Katy Freels chipped a ball to her in the area and she put the ball away with a bicycle kick. Taylor Lytlemade it 3-0 after only 17 minutes.

The loss was only the second in nine games for Portland, which dropped into second place. Thorns FC was missing starters Alex Morgan, Rachel Buehler, Christine Sinclair and Karina LeBlanc, who were away on international duty with the USA-Canada friendly.

De Vanna goal:
