[NWSL REWIND: Week 19] The Western New York Flash and Portland Thorns FC both earned 2-1 decisions on Saturday to move into a tie for first place with FC Kansas City heading into the final day of the NWSL regular season. The Blues will clinch the title with a win or tie over Chicago on Sunday at home.

In the case of a Kansas City loss, there will be a three-way tie for first place -- four-way in case of a Sky Blue FC win in Sunday's other game -- and the Flash will take the title on goal difference -- barring a 12-goal Sky Blue FC win. The Flash win over Boston before 6,311 fans all but secured it a semifinal game at Sahlen’s Stadium.

Abby Wambach led Western New York with a goal and assist on Samantha Kerr's goal. Rhian Wilkinson scored for Boston. Wambach's goal was her 11th of the season. She's tied for second with Boston's Sydney Leroux behind Lauren Holiday of Kansas City with 12 goals.

After Portland conceded the game’s opening goal to Seattle's Megan Rapinoe in the third minute, Christine Sinclair responded with a goal in each half to give the Thorns their 2-1 win  before a sellout crowd of 3,855 at Starfire Sports Complex.
