Late goal helps Reign top Flash, 3-2


TUKWILA, Wash. — Reign FC continued its run of favorable results thanks to Christine Nairn’s goal in the 82nd minute that gave Seattle a 3-2 win over the Western New York Flash at Starfire Stadium.

Jessica Fishlock and Megan Rapinoe also scored for Seattle to offset two goals from U.S. national-team star Abby Wambach.

The Reign is unbeaten in five games since Rapinoe joined the team following the completion of her European season with Olympique Lyonnais in France. Rapinoe has two goals during the stretch and, along with goalkeeper and fellow U.S. international Hope Solo, has helped Seattle to a 3-0-2 record since June 23.
