[NWSL: Week 9] The expansion Houston Dash broke out for its biggest win of the season with a 3-0 victory over struggling Sky Blue FC on Sunday. Tiffany McCarty scored twice and Ella Masar added the third goal before a sparse crowd of 1,457 fans in New Jersey.

Erin McLeod recorded the Dash’s first shutout as it won its second consecutive game to move into a tie with Sky Blue for seventh place.

SATURDAY. 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. The game marked the first of the season for Timbers star Alex Morgan.

WEDNESDAY. The 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 Kansas City game with a mild lateral collateral ligament sprain sustained at Houston the previous Saturday.
