Scotswoman Kim Littleadded 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 Holidaypenalty 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.
