[NWSL: Week 5] Australian Samantha Kerr scored one goal and set up Jasmyne Spencer for the other to lead the Western New York Flash to a 2-1 win over FC Kansas City that moved it into a tie for third place with the Blues, one point behind Portland eight points behind unbeaten and untied Seattle.

Kerr is one of four NWSL players, along with Flash keeper Lydia Williams, Lisa De Vanna (Boston Breakers) and Caitlin Foord (Sky Blue FC) in the Australia squad for its AFC Women’s Asian Cup title defense in Vietnam. The tournament, which begins next Wednesday, will also serve as Asian qualifying for the 2015 Women's World Cup.

In Wednesday's other game, Sky Blue FC was held to a 1-1 tie by Chicago at home. Katy Freels put Sky Blue ahead in the first half, but Hayley Brock equalized for only the Red Stars' second goal in four games.
