Leroux's first goal of season keeps Reign perfect

[NWSL: Week 4] The Seattle Reign FC improved to 5-0-0 with a 2-1 win at the Washington Spirit for its second win in four days on its current road trip. What is remarkable about the start is that the Reign has been without Megan Rapinoe since the season opener, and Sydney Leroux's game winner on Saturday was her first goal of the season.

Ali Krieger's goal early in the second half for the Spirit was the first Hope Solo has conceded from the run of play this season, but Jessica Fishlock evened the score in the 55th minute with her second goal of the season.

Leroux became the eighth different Reign player to score in five games with her winner in the 76th minute.
