[NWSL: Week 9] The Seattle Reign set an NWSL record by extending its unbeaten streak to 11 games with a 3-1 win over the Chicago Red Stars in a battle of the league's top two teams.

Scotswoman Kim Little added two more goals to give her a league-high 11, while Sydney Leroux had the other goal for Seattle.

FC Kansas City moved into second place with a 2-0 win over Boston on a pair of Lauren Holiday penalty kicks, while the Western Flash won for the first time in six games with a 5-0 win at Portland, getting two goals and an assist from Samantha Kerr and two goals from Carli Lloyd. The Thorns had 2013 FIFA Women's Player of the Year Nadine Angerer sent off in the 28th minute. The game marked the first of the season for Portland star Alex Morgan.

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.

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