[NWSL: Week 6] The Chicago Red Stars moved into second place in the NWSL with a 4-1 win over the Boston Breakers. The Red Stars, who scored three goals in their first five games, scored seven goals in their two wins over Boston in four days.

SATURDAY. English international Jodie Taylor celebrated her 28th birthday with two goals to lead the Washington Spirit to a 3-2 win over the Western New York Flash before 4,598 fans at the Maryland SoccerPlex. On the third Spirit goal, Taylor's shot hit the crossbar and bounced off Flash defender Kathryn Williamson's back and into the goal. U.S. national team stars Carli Lloyd and Abby Wambach had scored for the Flash to put it ahead 2-1 before the own goal tied the score at 2-2.

THURSDAY. Chicago came back from a goal down after 18 minutes to defeat the Boston Breakers, 3-1, in front of 1,696 fans at Harvard Stadium. Courtney Jones gave Boston the lead, but the Red Stars responded during a 13-minute span surrounding halftime on a Lori Chalupny header from Adriana Leon, an unassisted Michelle Wenino goal and an insurance goal by Jen Hoy from Samantha Johnson in the 57th minute.

WEDNESDAY. Seattle Reign FC got goals from Kendall Fletcher, Kim Little -- her league-tying sixth of the season -- and Keelin Winters to defeat FC Kansas City, 3-2, improve to 7-0-0. The expansion Houston Dash dropped its sixth game in seven tries when it fell to the Portland Thorns, 1-0, on Jessica McDonald's fourth goal of the season.
