[NWSL REWIND: Week 17] Sky Blue FC used a second-half goal by Mexican forward Monica Ocampo to beat the last-place Washington Spirit, 1-0, and move into a tie with Portland Thorns FC for second place, just a point behind FC Kansas City. Portland hosts FC Kansas City in a battle for first place on Sunday.

-- The Chicago Red Stars beat Seattle, 3-1, in front of a sell-out crowd of 3,400 people to knock Reign FC out of the running for a spot in the NWSL playoffs. Inka Grings notched two goals and fellow German Sonja Fuss added a penalty kick. The Reign’s only goal was scored by Kaylyn Kyle off a penalty kick.

-- In Cat Whitehill's debut as interim player/coach, the Boston Breakers took a 2-0 over Western New York before the Flash fought to earn a 2-2 draw at Dilboy Stadium on late goals by Vicki DiMartino and Carli Lloyd. Kyah Simon and Lianne Sanderson scored for Boston, which had also blown a late lead and settled for a 2-2 tie against the Flash when they met in early June.
