MAIN PTFC Alex Morgan vs FCKC 7-13-14

This week there were three matches in the midweek round of the NWSL; On Thursday they played Chicago Red Stars - Portland Thorns and Houston Dash - Washington Spirit while Friday was played by Western New York Flash - FC Kansas City.

The Red Stars came from a precious win at home against the Seattle Reigns, a victory that also interrupted the Reign unbeaten run after well-16 matches, while the Portland Thorns came from a large win for 7-1 against the Kansas City, second in the standings. The game is released after just 32 seconds with the Thorns goal scored by Jessica McDonald, good at picking up a low cross from the left by Australian Stephanie Catley. This goal is the tenth for Jessica McDonald this season, in the top scorer list of the NWSL is preceded only by Kim Little of the Seattle with 11 goal. The first half will end 1-0 for the Thorns with the Chicago but they waste several occasions to draw. The draw arrives at the 77 ', when Lori Chalupny reiterates in the net from a few meters a detour on the shot of his partner Jen Hoy. The Chicago in the recovery minutes also have the chance to win the game but Christen Press wastes and the game ends with the 1-1 score.

Also the other Thursday game between Houston Dash and Washington Spirit ends 1-1. The Washington Spirit opened the scoring at the 19 'with Lisa De Vanna taking advantage of a beautiful ball by Jodie Taylor to end cynically and beat the Dash goalkeeper Erin Mcleod. At 33 'Houston close to draw with striker Kealia Ohai's post. The draw of Houston comes at the 74 ', goal by Marissa Diggs, following a corner kick. The Washington, in the minutes of recovery, have the opportunity to win the game, but Kerstin Garefrekes 'shot finds the crossbar and the game ends on' 1-1.

In Friday's game, the WNYs, who have returned from a home loss to 0-1 against the Washington team, are home to the Kansas team; the game unlocks at 17 ', when Sarah Hagen receives a nice ball from Lauren Holiday and catches WNY goalkeeper Kelsey Wys with a lob. The WNY draws immediately to the 22 'with a goal headed by Samantha Kerr that beats Nicole Barnhart. At 24 'Kansas City becomes dangerous with Amy Rodriguez hitting the post. At the 36 'Nicole Barnhart's great save deflecting a free kick by Carli Lloyd over the bar. The Kansas City goalkeeper is still starring at the 66 'when he denies Sam Kerr a one-two. At 84 'Amy Rodriguez wastes a precious chance and the game ends with the third draw for 1-1 of the week.
