[NWSL: Week 3] The Seattle Reign won its third game in a row to open the 2014 NWSL season with a 2-0 win over the expansion Houston Dash thanks to a pair of first-half goals from Scotswoman Kim Little, who leads the NWSL with four goals.

Boston earned its first win and climbed out of the basement with a 3-2 victory over winless Sky Blue FC.

Coach Cindy Parlow Cone departed after the first season, but the Carolina influence at Portland continues as a pair of former Tar Heels, Jessica McDonald and Allie Long, combined for all three goals as the Thorns beat FC Kansas City, 3-1, to move back into first place in the NWSL. The Portland home opener drew 14,124 fans on a rainy night at Providence Park.

Tori Huster's goal gave the Washington Spirit a 1-0 win at Chicago for its second straight win.
