[NWSL PREVIEW: Week 17] After taking hold of second place with a 3-1 win over Sky Blue FC on Wednesday night, the Portland Thorns FC take aim at first-place FC Kansas City, unbeaten over its last nine games. The Thorns host the NWSL leader Sunday at JELD-WEN Field (TV: FOX Soccer, 8:30 ET) and will take the lead with a win.

-- Thorns FC attempted a season-high 25 shots, including 13 on goal, in the 3-1 win over Sky Blue FC before more than 13,000 fans. It recently added former U.S. national team defender Tina Ellertson for the remainder of the season in place of midfielder Nikki Washington, who was placed on the disabled list with a knee injury.

-- FC Kansas City's unbeaten streak includes three wins in a row. Midfielder Lauren Holiday is an early favorite for the NWSL MVP award with 10 goals (tied for league) and nine assists (most in the league).
