[NWSL: Week 7] U.S. national team veteran Kelley O'Hara scored on a pass from Christie Rampone in the 84th minute to give Sky Blue FC a 1-0 win at the Portland Thorns before 13,427 fans.

Alex Morgan dressed for the Thorns for the first time this season but did not play.

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.
