Reign FC extends unbeaten streak to five games
July 12th, 2013 3:14AM



[NWSL REWIND: Week 14] It could be a case of too little too late, but the Seattle Reign FC continued its turnaround with a 3-2 win over the Western New York Flash Thursday night in front of 2,514 at Starfire Stadium.

Seattle got goals from Christine Nairn, Jessica Fishlock and Megan Rapinoe and a big game in goal from Hope Solo, who made eight saves. Reign FC began its first NWSL season with a 0-9-1 record but is unbeaten in its last five games.

Abby Wambach
scored both goals for the Flash to give her nine for the season, but Solo made two big saves on Wambach in the second half to hold off Western New York.

Wednesday ...

Adriana Leon, who came over from Boston in a trade in June, scored the first goal from the penalty spot and and 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.
