[NWSL REWIND: Week 12] Mexican Monica Ocampo scored in the 85th minute and second minute of stoppage time to give Sky Blue FC a 2-2 tie with FC Kansas City that was good enough to take the lead in the NWSL. The Seattle Reign FC earned its first win in 12 games, defeating the Boston Breakers, 2-1.

KC Kansas City looked to have sown up the win in New Jersey when Lauren Cheney made it 2-0 in the 74th minute with her seventh goal of the season, tying Abby Wambach for the league lead, but Ocampo had other ideas with her second and third NWSL goals. The win gave Sky Blue FC a one-point lead over idle Portland.

-- Reign FC trailed the Breakers, 1-0, until Jessica Fishlock and Christine Nairn scored in the last 12 minutes for the win. The game was U.S star Megan Rapinoe's second with Reign FC since her arrival from French club Lyon.
