[NWSL REWIND: Week 13]FC Kansas City played to a 0-0 tie with the Western New York Flash -- only the second scoreless draw since the start of the NWSL -- and held on to its two-point lead over the Flash in third place. Flash goalkeeper Adrianna Franch held off the Blues with 13 saves -- nine in the first half alone. Despite temperatures hitting 110 degrees on the field, 5,031 people packed into Shawnee Mission District Stadium for the match.

Saturday ...

-- Sky Blue FC opened up a four-point lead at the top of the NWSL thanks to a 1-0 win over the Washington Spirit and Portland Thorns FC's 2-0 loss at home to the Boston Breakers. Mexican Monica Ocampo ran on to an open shot inside the top of the box after Danesha Adams had her shot blocked in the 74th minute for the game's only goal. The win snapped Sky Blue's three-game winless streak.

--Sydney Leroux added to her league lead with her ninth and 10th goals of the season to beat Portland before 12,436 fans at JELD-WEN Field. Both goals came on assists from Heather O’Reilly. Thorns FC attempted a season-high 20 shots but could not beat goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. It hasn't scored since a 2-0 win over Seattle on June 16.
