Update: Seattle improved to 8-0-2 on the season with a 3-1 road win, led by two goals from Nahomi Kawasumi in her return from national-team duty plus a league-leading ninth goal by Kim Little. Sky Blue FC had opened the scoring with a first-half goal by Katy Freels, her team-leading fourth, but couldn’t hang on. Hope Solo made seven saves for the Reign, which returns home for a 7 p.m. game Saturday against Chicago.
Reign FC is still first place and undefeated in the NWSL, but the team’s last two games have involved having to come back just to earn a tie. Seattle (7-0-2) will look to get back to winning ways in a road game 3 p.m. Sunday against Sky Blue FC (2-4-4).
Kim Little has continued her MVP form for the Reign having scored eight goals, tied for the league lead. In other big news, Nahomi Kawasumi has rejoined the team following international duty with Japan.
SBFC is paced by the three goals of Katy Freels.
