[NWSL: Week 7] In the midst of a five-game homestand, the Boston Breakers are finding the comforts of Harvard Stadium have not been to their liking. The Breakers, who host FC Kansas City on Saturday, have lost 3-1 and 4-1 to Chicago at home to drop into the NWSL basement.

A 1-0 loss at Sky Blue FC on May 3 leaves Coach Tom Durkin’s squad without a point in May. The Breakers have conceded 12 of their 16 goals this season in the second half.

The homestand doesn't get any easier next week when the Breakers host the defending champion Portland Timbers FC on Wednesday.

FRIDAY. The expansion Houston Dash finally got its first goal at BBVA Compass Stadium, but it wasn’t enough to get its first result at home as it fell 3-1 to the Chicago Red Stars, who moved into second place with the win.

The key play came in the 32nd minute when the Dash earned a penalty but Chicago keeper Erin McLeod stopped Becky Edwards. Vanessa DiBernardo, who converted a spot kick, and Jen Hoy each had a goal and assist for Chicago.

Eli Masar, who scored the first-ever goal in Dash history in Boston on April 20, had the equalizer for Houston and celebrated the first home goal by removing her jersey and sliding to the corner flag. Three minutes later, Alyssa Mautz put Chicago ahead for good.

Dash head coach Randy Waldrum was ejected by referee Timon Berry after the third Chicago goal scored by Hoy.

WEDNESDAY. The NWSL's co-scoring leaders, Kim Little and Amy Rodriguez, exchanged goals as the Seattle Reign FC played to a 1-1 tie at FC Kansas City that ended its winning streak to start the season at seven games. Little scored from the penalty spot in the 45th minute three minutes after Rodriguez put Kansas City ahead with her seventh goal of the season.

-- Jessica McDonald scored her fifth goal of the season and Allie Long added her fourth to lead the  Portland Thorns FC to a 2-1 win over the Western New York Flash in front of 10,920 fans at Providence Park. McDonald and Long have scored every goal for the second-place Thorns, who improved to 4-1-2 with the win.
