Four teams could end weekend tied at top

[NWSL PREVIEW: Week 19] FC Kansas City is in the driver's seat, heading into the final weekend of play in the NWSL's inaugural regular season.  It needs only a draw at home against Chicago to clinch the regular season. But Portland, Western New York and Sky Blue FC, the three teams tied for second place three points behind it, all play other teams, meaning the regular season could theoretically end with a four-way tie for first place.
