WNT Weekend Rewind: Portland Wins NWSL Shield, Regular Season Wraps Up

After 20 weeks of intense matchups, a high level of play and some heated rivalries, the historic fourth regular season of the National Women’s Soccer League came to a close this past weekend. The Portland Thorns won the 2016 NWSL Shield with a 3-1 victory against Sky Blue FC on the last day of play, while Western New York Flash booked its place in the post season with a dominant 4-0 win against the Boston Breakers.

The NWSL playoffs begin on Friday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. ET on FS1 as the Washington Spirit hosts the Chicago Red Stars at the Maryland SoccerPlex, and continue on Oct. 2 at 5 p.m. ET also on FS1 as the Portland Thorns welcome the Western New York Flash to the fortress that is Providence Park.

FC Kansas City Finishes Season with Four-Game Unbeaten Run After 2-1 Win Against the Orlando Pride
For the second time this season, Becky Sauerbrunn and FC Kansas City defeated Ashlyn Harris, Alex Morgan, and the Orlando Pride to finish its season on a four-game undefeated streak. Freshly retired from international play, Heather O’Reilly scored the game-winner on a penalty kick. Despite missing the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, FCKC found its chemistry late in the year to finish strong and get one last win on the road.

Western New York Flash Earns Convincing 4-0 Win Against the Boston Breakers to Secure Playoff Spot
All Western New York needed to book its ticket into the post-season was a draw against Boston, but the Flash did not take any chances, winning 4-0 in a dominating fashion that included a very early goal. Samantha Mewis contributed with a score in Western New York’s shutout of Boston, while Whitney Engen was able to play a full 90 for the Breakers despite still nursing a sore hamstring.

Chicago Red Stars Top Washington Spirit 3-1
In a matchup that we will see again on Friday in the first semifinal of the 2016 NWSL postseason, the Chicago Red Stars largely ended (even though the result of the Portland game was yet to be determined the next day) the Washington Spirit’s hope for a NWSL Shield celebration when they came out on top 3-1 at Toyota Park on Saturday evening. Christen Press scored a goal for the Red Stars, her eighth goal of the season, while Crystal Dunn scored the sole goal for the Spirit.

Portland Thorns Win NWSL Shield with 3-1 Win against Sky Blue FC
With the Washington loss the night before, Portland knew it could win the 2016 NWSL Shield for the first time in its history with a win. Allie Long found the back of the next twice for Portland and Lindsey Horan scored on a diving header to lift the team to the top of the league on the final night of NWSL regular season action. Tobin Heath assisted on one of Long’s goal, making it her 10th assist of 2016, a new Thorns and NWSL record for most assists in a single season. With the win, Portland set a new single-season record for most wins (12, tied with Washington this year) and points (41) in a season.

Seattle Reign Scores Late Goal to Top Houston Dash, 3-2
The Reign maintained its perfect record (7-0-0) against the Dash with a 3-2 win in Houston on Sunday night in the final match of the 2016 NWSL regular season. Carli Lloyd scored for Houston in the first half to give the home side a 2-0 lead into the half. Seattle mounted an impressive comeback in the second half and scored three goals in the final 30 minutes of play to take the win and finish their season on a high note.
