NWSL, week 12 in review: Clean sheets

FC Kansas City shuts out Portland, Washington shuts out Houston and Sky Blue and Seattle shut out each other in a low-scoring week 12.

NWSL week 12 preview: Stay hot

Kansas City and Seattle look to keep their streaks alive, Hope Solo’s possible return and the Houston Dash finally gets to play a game again.

NWSL, week 11 in review: 13 undefeated

Seattle keeps rolling, Chicago keeps slipping, Kansas City keeps climbing, Portland makes a statement, and Boston and Sky Blue do… whatever it is they do.

NWSL week 11 preview: Second half

The middle of the table is getting crowded, and with Washington-Portland and Chicago-Kansas City both on the schedule, week 11 could bring some big changes to the standings.

NWSL, week 10 preview: National team duty

Houston and Kansas City try to end each other’s unbeaten runs, Chicago visits the bottom of the table, and Portland tries to convince Washington it’s time to switch back

NWSL, week 9 in review: Plenty of penalties

Week nine was a crazy one, full of penalties, dives, cards of every color, a little controversy and a lot of goals. And that was just Saturday.

NWSL week 9 preview: Took a flight from Sweden

The NWSL’s players-with-Damallsvenskan-commitments contingent finally arrives, Seattle and Chicago finally meet and Houston and Sky Blue try to figure out which one gets to wear the orange shirts.

NWSL, week 8 in review: You've changed

Seattle makes it ten straight, Washington climbs the table and Western NY officially joins the race to the bottom

NWSL, week 7 in review: Late game magic

A Little late game magic for Seattle, and for O’Sky Blue, too. A-Rod nets another, and Boston? Oh, dear. Oh, brother.

NWSL, Week 6 in review: Big crash

Western NY stumbles, Washington wins big, Houston gets a point, Chicago climbs the table and Boston boards a school bus on a journey to the center of the earth.

NWSL, week 6 preview: Be an optimist instead

Western NY’s rise, Houston’s fall, and Boston and Chicago perform a 90-minute version of an ICYMI tweet.

No one's stopping Seattle in NWSL

Kansas City gets a big win, Sky Blue FC gets a little one, Seattle just keeps on Reigning and our old friend Mr. Red Card makes his season debut.

NWSL, week 4 preview: Rematch!

Week 4 brings our first rematches of the season, including one of last year’s championship.

NWSL, week 3 in review: No more looking back

No one can stop Seattle and Washington gets back in the saddle. Portland and Boston win, FC Kansas City doesn't and will someone please tell Sky Blue FC the season started?

NWSL, Week 3 preview: Rebound?

Portland's home opener, a chance for Kansas City to settle a score, Seattle's first big test, and in Boston we'll probably just do trust falls and watch Duck Soup. It's week 3 of the NWSL season.

NWSL, Week 2 in review: First goals, first wins

Perpetual bottom-dwellers Washington pulled off a big win, a veteran player scored her first-ever pro goal and there were penalty kicks. So many penalty kicks.

NWSL, Week 2: Press debuts, Seattle sits out

Seattle impressed everyone in week 1, but thanks to the scheduling gods, the Reign have off until Wednesday. This week, Chicago makes its season debut, complete with Christen Press. Will Chicago be week 2's Reign or can someone else step up?

NWSL season previews: Portland Thorns

Defending champions Portland are looking to make it two titles in two years. They've still got Christine Sinclair and Alex Morgan, and the Thorns have also added a brand new coach who just happens to be Paul Riley.

NWSL season previews: WNY Flash

The 2013 Flash fell just short of a fourth consecutive title. A year later, Western NY will look to avenge that final loss, but the Flash will have to do it without starting keeper Adrianna Franch.

NWSL season previews: FC Kansas City

FC Kansas City had everything you need for a championship in 2013, except the Blues often struggled to close out games when it mattered. Has KC exorcised the ghosts of a tough semifinal loss and found some focus, or will they fall just short, again?

NWSL season previews: Sky Blue FC

Sky Blue FC is mostly unchanged from a year ago, except for trading Lisa De Vanna and the fact that Kelley O'Hara is healthy. But are a still-young defense, a steady midfield, a pair of rookie strikers and hopes that O'Hara can find her way enough?

NWSL season previews: Boston Breakers

The Boston Breakers made relatively few changes from last season's middle-of-the-table side, but the one they did make - sending Sydney Leroux to Seattle and acquiring Lisa De Vanna from New Jersey - might just make all the difference.

NWSL Week 1 preview: First kick

The NWSL is back, with eight of the nine teams in action to kick off the second season. The Houston Dash make their debut against Portland, and we'll get our first look just how much all that tinkering - or lack of - payed off everywhere else.

NWSL season previews: Chicago Red Stars

Flashy has never been Chicago's style on the field, and with one exception, that's been the Red Stars' style off the field too. But keeping things the same may be the best thing that Chicago could have done. Well, that, and signing Christen Press.

NWSL season previews: Washington Spirit

It would be impossible for the 2014 Washington Spirit to be any worse than the 2013 version of the team. The NSWL's former last-place finishers have made some serious upgrades for their second season, but will it be enough?

NWSL season previews: Seattle Reign

Megan Rapinoe! Sydney Leroux! Hope Solo! Kim Little! Jess Fishlock! Thanks to a flurry of offseason moves, the Seattle Reign head into 2014 looking like a whole new team.

NWSL season previews: Houston Dash

The Houston Dash enter 2014 as the NSWL's first-ever expansion team, but just how new does the league's newest team actually look?

Abby Wambach's Record Setting Night

With four first half goals in a 5-0 win over the Korea Republic, Abby Wambach broke Mia Hamm's international goals record of 158. Wambach now has 160 career goals - the most by any player - female or male.

USWNT show the past, present & future in win

The past, present and future of the USWNT came together as Kristie Mewis, Lauren Cheney, Carli Lloyd and Abby Wambach all scored in the U.S.'s 4-1 win over the Korea Republic on Saturday night in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

USWNT-Canada: The Sequel is Just Never as Good

The USWNT and Canada met for the first time since their epic Olympic semifinal ten months ago. But the great rematch we were promised? It ended up being kind of a dud.
