[NWSL SCHEDULE: Week 13]
The top three teams in the NWSL are all at home over the
weekend. First-place Sky Blue FC and second-place Portland Thorns FC are both coming off losses, and neither has won in almost three weeks.
Sky Blue FC, which has a three-game winless
streak, hosts the Washington Spirit, which snapped a five-game losing streak with a 1-1 tie with FC Kansas City Wednesday in new coach Mark Parson
's first game in charge.
Portland, which hasn't scored since a 2-0 win over Seattle on June 16, faces the Boston
Breakers for the first time this season.
FC Kansas City, which is now only three points off the lead, hosts the Western New York Flash on Sunday to conclude the weekend action. NWSL SCHEDULE, Week 13
