-- Monica Ocampo and Katy Freels-Frierson each had a goal and an assist as Sky Blue FC beat the Breakers at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville, Mass. Australian Lisa De Vanna had the third goal for Sky Blue FC.

-- Meleana Shim recorded her first pro goal and assisted on Danielle Foxhoven's goal in the Portland win. Thorns FC goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc made a beautiful kick save on a Seattle penalty kick attempt from Christine Nairn in the 84th minute to preserve the shutout.

-- German internationals Inka Grings and Sonja Fuss both scored as the Chicago Red Stars won, 3-1, at FC Kansas City to move to within one point of fifth-place Boston.

Saturday ...

The Western New York Flash defeated the Washington Spirit, 2-0, on goals by Mexican international Veronica Perez and Vicki DiMartino to extend is unbeaten streak to six games on Saturday night in front of 4,630 fans at Maryland SoccerPlex Stadium.
