MOST COMMENTED

[NWSL 2014 COUNTDOWN] The new-look Washington Spirit got a goal and assist from Canadian international Diana Matheson and opened its NWSL preseason with a 2-0 win over the University of North Carolina before 2,534 fans at the Maryland SoccerPlex.

The match marked the debuts for U.S. international Yael Averbuch as well as Jodi Taylor from England and Cecilie Sandvej from Denmark.

“It was great to play with Diana and Jodi for the first time,” said Spirit striker Tiffany Weimer, who joined the team from the 2013 champion Portland Thorns. “Everyone clicked a bit tonight. It was really cool to see. We’re two weeks in and there are already some really good things happening out on the pitch.”

-- The Chicago Red Stars and FC Kansas City played to a 1-1 tie in front of a 2,000-plus crowd at St. Louis Soccer Park. St. Louis native Alyssa Mautz put Chicago ahead in the 51st minute, but Melissa Henderson equalized for FC Kansas City in the 83rd minute. “It was so good to be back at home and back on this field,” said Mautz. “I love playing in front of family, friends and hometown fans. And it’s always nice to get a goal in front of them, too.”

-- Back from the Algarve Cup, Carli Lloyd scored both goals to lead the Western New York Flash to a 2-0 win over visiting West Virginia University. Lloyd practiced with the team for the first time on Friday. Newly acquired Lydia Williams got the start in goal. The Flash signed the Australian national team goalkeeper after AD Franch's season-ending ACL tear.

-- The expansion Houston Dash defeated Texas A&M, 1-0, in a scrimmage at Houston Sports Park on first-round draft pick Kealia Ohai's goal in the seventh minute.
