[NWSL: Week 11]Sydney Leroux scored in the 90th minute to give the Seattle Reign FC a 2-1 comeback win at the Western New York Flash that extended its undefeated streak to a league-record 13 games.

The Flash went ahead in the 61st minute on a goal by midfielder Samantha Kerr. It was the fifth time in the past six games that Reign FC conceded the game’s first goal.

Seattle got the equalizer in the 83d minute when Scottish international Kim Little's free kick deflected off Flash midfielder Carli Lloyd before sailing past Flash goalkeeperLydia Williams for the goal.

Leroux dribbled past Williams off a chip into the box by midfielder Jessica Fishlock for the winner.

Seattle was playing without goalie Hope Solo on its East Coast trip. Haley Kopmeyer made her second consecutive start in place of Solo, who was arrested on Saturday morning back in the Seattle area.

“Today’s match demonstrated the character of this team yet again,” said Reign coach Laura Harvey. “Whenever we face adversity we stay together and refuse to give up.”

SATURDAY. The Portland Thorns FC set a club record for goals in a game with a 6-1 win at the Washington Spirit. Alex Morganand Jessica McDonald led the Thorns with two goals apiece. FC Kansas City extended its unbeaten streak to seven games with a 1-0 win over Chicago on Jen Buczkowski's late goal.
