[NWSL: Week 18] The defending champion Portland Thorns FC attempted a club record 15 shots on goal but could not overcome a two-goal halftime deficit in a 2-0 loss at the last-place Boston Breakers on Sunday night.
 
Rachel Wood and Heather O'Reilly scored for Boston, which got 10 saves from Alyssa Naeher. Christine Sinclairbecame just the third player in NWSL history to tally 10 or more shots in a match. Her seven shots on goal set an NWSL record.

The Thorns remained in fourth place in the NWSL standings with just one game remaining on their regular-season schedule. Also in the race for the final two postseason berths are the Washington Spirit, Chicago Red Stars, Western New York Flash and Sky Blue FC.

Saturday ...

Chicago and Sky Blue FC kept their slim playoff hopes alive with wins. Melissa Tancredi and Christen Press scored first-half goals to give Chicago a 2-1 win over FC Kansas City, while Afghani-Dane Nadia Nadim's hat trick was all Sky Blue needed in a 3-1 win at Houston. Washington had a chance to clinch a playoff berth but had to settle for a 1-1 tie with Seattle.
