[NWSL REWIND: Week 17] The Portland Thorns FC took over second place in the NWSL with a 3-1 come-from-behind win over Sky Blue FC before 13,769 fans at JELD-WEN  Field.

Three unanswered goals, including back-to-back tallies in an eight-minute span during the second half, was the difference for Portland.

Midfielder Meleana Shim scored her fourth goal in as many games, with the eventual game-winning goal in the 65th minute. She also set up the tying goal scored by Alex Morgan.

Allie Long added an insurance goal for Portland.

-- The Washington Spirit's season of misery continued as it lost at home to the Western New York Flash, 3-0, in a game in which it was outshot, 23-1.

Early substitute Adrianna Martin opened the scoring with her third goal of the season in the 35th minute, and the Flash added two more goals in the second half  from Samantha Kerr and Carli Lloyd.
