[NWSL: Week 9] Frances Silva’s header in the final minute of stoppage time gave FC Kansas City a 2-1 victory over the expansion Houston Dash that moved it to within five points of unbeaten Seattle at the top of the NWSL standings.

-- Spanish star Veronica Boquete and Jessica McDonald scored for Portland in its 2-0 win over the Washington Spirit before 10,365 fans at Providence Park. It was Vero's first goal since joining the Thorns from Tyreso in Sweden.

-- Rookie Maya Hayes scored the game tying goal in the 63rd minute to give Sky Blue FC a 2-2 tie at Chicago before 1,211 fans.

WEDNESDAY. Houston won for the first time at BBVA Compass Stadium and made it three wins in a row with a 2-1 win over the Western New York Flash in front of 4,843 fans.

Houston got goals from Tiffany McCarty and Teresa Noyola sandwiched around a goal by Spaniard Adriana Martin for the Flash, which was missing U.S. international stars Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd, who joined the USA for its pair of matches against France.

-- Goals by Katie Schoepfer and Courtney Jones a minute apart late in the first half gave the last-place Boston Breakers a 2-0 win over Washington in front of 1,429 fans at Harvard Stadium in Boston.
