[NWSL: Week 4] Abby Wambach, who missed the first two games of the Western New York Flash's season with a broken orbital bone suffered in the USA-China match on the eve of the 2014 NWSL season opener, is set to return for Saturday's game against Portland in a rematch of the 2013 league final.

Wambach's return coincides with the loss of the Flash's other U.S. star, Carli Lloyd, who will have to serve the first of her two-game suspension for taking a swipe at Chicago's Vanessa DiBernardo in a game two weeks ago.

WASHINGTON-SEATTLE. Seattle and Washington, which finished seventh and eighth in the NWSL last season, head into Saturday's match at the Maryland SportsPlex in first and third place. Such has been the turnaround at the two clubs that Saturday's winner will equal its 2013 win total with a victory.

Seattle enters the game with four wins in four games, while Washington is 2-1-0. The Spirit's only defeat was a 3-1 loss at Seattle. The Reign made it four wins in four games Wednesday when it beat last-place Sky Blue FC, 2-0, on goals by Beverly Goebel and Nahomi Kawasumi, two players brought over from Japan. The shutout was the third in four games for Hope Solo.
