Westfield Matildas USA NWSL wrap

Samantha Kerr played a full part as Sky Blue FC went down 4-3 at Washington Spirit.

It was a busy weekend for a number of Matildas players in the latest round of National Women's Soccer League action in the USA.

Hayley Raso played a full 90 minutes in the Portland Thorns' latest outing.

In front of over 16-thousand fans, Portland scored a late equaliser to draw 2-2 at home with Seattle Reign.

The point sees the Thorns lie second on the ten-team table after four rounds.

Fresh from winning the Julie Dolan Medal for the Westfield W-League player of the year, Samantha Kerr also played a full part as Sky Blue FC went down 4-3 at Washington Spirit.

The loss leaves Sky Blue eighth after four games.

Lydia Williams was unable to prevent a 2-0 loss for her Houston Dash side at the Chicago Red Stars.

The Matildas goalkeeper conceded goals either side of half-time in a 2-0 loss which leaves Dash in fourth place on goal difference.

And Orlando Pride picked up just their second point of the campaign with a 1-1 draw away at fellow strugglers Kansas City.

Matildas defenders Steph Catley and Alanna Kennedy played 90 minutes for the Pride, who conceded a late goal to miss out on all three points.

Fellow Aussie Laura Alleway was an unused substitute.
