[NWSL: Week 9] It's first-place Seattle vs. second-place Chicago -- the NWSL's best offense against its best defense -- in Saturday's top-of-the-standings clash at Memorial Stadium. The Reign has a chance to set an NWSL record by extending its unbeaten streak to an unprecedented 11 games.

Scotswoman Kim Little leads the Reign with nine goals. Chicago's Karina LeBlanc has the lowest goals-against average in the NWSL at 0.67.

Joining the Red Stars is Christen Press, one of three U.S. internationals who stayed in Europe under their UEFA Champions League campaign ended and have returned to the NWSL. This week they got news that their Swedish club, Tyreso, has folded following its bankruptcy.

-- In Portland, Alex Morgan should make her first appearance of the season for the champion Thorns against Western New York.

-- Another Red Star player on the U.S. national team, Shannon Boxx, trained with Portland this week. She lives in Portland and is working to regain her fitness after giving birth to her first child in February.

WEDNESDAY. The Chicago Red Stars' five-game winning streak that moved them into second place in the NWSL ended when they fell at home to the Washington Spirit, 1-0. Amy Rodriguez continued her hot form with the lone goal in FC Kansas City's 1-0 win over Western New York.

Chicago came into the game with the NWSL's best defense, but Englishwoman Jodie Taylor broke a scoreless deadlock in the 79th minute for the Spirit, which moved into fourth place with the victory.

A-Rod's goal gave here nine for the season, tied with Kim Little of first-place Seattle for the league lead.

Flash star Abby Wambach missed the game with a mild lateral collateral ligament sprain sustained at Houston on Saturday.
