[NWSL REWIND: Week 16] In surely the wildest game of the NWSL season, the Portland Thorns FC had to settle for a 3-3 tie with the Chicago Red Stars in front of 12,534 fans at JELD-WEN Field after twice leading by two goals.

The Thorns, who got two goals from Canadian star Christine Sinclair, led 2-0 and 3-1 but could not hold for the win in a match that featured five yellow cards, including one on U.S. star Tobin Heath for a heavy challenge on Lori Chalupny that forced the Red Stars' top scorer to leave the game.

Alyssa Mautz, who replaced Chalupny, had two goals for Chicago, which tied the score at 3-3 in the 86th minute on a goal by Julianne Sitch.

Saturday ...

Boston Breakers got goals from five different players -- Lianne Sanderson, Mariah Nogueira,  Heather O'Reilly, Cat Whitehill and Rhian Wilkinson -- to beat the last-place Washington Spirit, 5-2, on the road. The loss was the fourth in a row for the Spirit, which slumped to 1-12-4.
