[NWSL REWIND: Day 12]What does Megan Rapinoe mean to the Seattle Reign FC? It is unbeaten in three games since she finally arrived from French club Lyon as its 3-1 win over Chicago Saturday moved it out of last place.

Rapinoe scored the insurance goal in stoppage time for Seattle, which also got goals from Kaylyn Kyle and Jessica Fishlockand two assists from Christine Nairn.

Sunday ...

Sky Blue FC remained in first place despite its 3-2 loss to the Boston Breakers as Portland Thorns FC, one point behind, fell to FC Kansas City, 2-0. Sydney Leroux scored twice to help the Breakers break their five-game winless streak. Lauren Cheney scored her league-high eighth goal of the season in the FCKC win.

Friday ...

Abby Wambach, who shares the NWSL goal-scoring lead with Lauren Cheney, turned provider, setting up two of Carli Lloyd's three goals and Brittany Taylor's stoppage-time goal as the Western New York Flash defeated the Washington Spirit, 4-0, at Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester, N.Y. The result extended the Spirit's losing streak to five games during which it has been outscored 13-0.
