[NWSL: Week 19] A third team, Washington, is through to the NWSL playoffs despite its 1-0 loss to Sky Blue FC on Saturday, while two teams still have a shot at the fourth berth as Chicago could only manage to tie Western New York, 3-3. Portland will overtake the Red Stars if it beats Seattle at home on Sunday.

Despite playing without Danish star Nadia Nadim, recalled for World Cup qualifying in Europe, Sky Blue FC won on Monica Ocampo's goal. Chicago's draw with the Flash eliminated Sky Blue FC but clinched a berth for the Spirit in the playoffs a year after the Washington club finished last.

The Red Stars dug into a 3-1 hole by the 50th minute but earned a rallied on goals by Christen Press, her second of the game, and Julie Johnston from the penalty spot in the 93rd minute.

Press scored her first goal from the penalty spot but missed a second spot kick. Adriana Martin, Carli Lloyd and Sam Kerr scored for the Flash.

“We’re all pretty disappointed,” said Red Stars coach Rory Dames. “We made some uncharacteristic mistakes in the first half. I thought the response in the second half was good and we fought our way back.”
