Red Stars put Washington on its back foot

[NWSL REWIND: Week 14] Adriana Leon, who came over from Boston in a trade in June, scored the first goal from the penalty spot and had an assist on Ella Masar's goal to lead the Chicago Red Stars to a 2-0 win over the Washington Spirit.

Chicago was frustrated in the early going as Inka Grings had a penalty kick stopped by Spirit goalie Ashlyn Harris and fellow German Sonja Fuss had a free kick hit the near post.

Chicago is 3-1-1 in its last five games and moved to within one point of fifth-place Boston. The loss left Washington with 1-9-4 record and 0-2-1 under new coach Mark Parsons.

“I don’t think the standings are fair enough to Chicago," said Parsons. "They’ve got a great group and are organized. It was impressive to see them come here and put us on the back foot.”
