[WPS]A week after Boston handed the leader Los Angeles Sol its first defeat of the season, the Breakers head to the Home Depot Depot, where they face the Sol in a Mother's Day afternoon game. For a look at all the weekend action ...

Saturday, May 9
Saint Louis vs. FC Gold Pride, 8 pm ET
Venue:Korte Stadium, Edwardsville, IL
By the Numbers
Form would indicate that Saturday's game will end in a 0-0 tie. The Athletica has yet to win or score in games in Edwardsville (1-0 loss) and St. Louis (0-0 tie), while FC Gold Pride are scoreless in two road games -- 0-0 tie at Sky Blue FC and 1-0 loss at Los Angeles. The Athletica broke out of a season-long scoring slump with three goals against Washington but lost Brazilian star Daniela, who notched two first-half goals on Sunday, with a knee injury and cracked tibia on a foul by Freedom star Abby Wambach. In last Sunday's 1-0 win over Sky Blue FC, the Pride's winning goal was scored by Leigh Ann Robinson, who had previously started on defense but came on for Canadian forward Christine Sinclair with 20 minutes to play.

Sunday, May 10
Los Angeles vs. Boston, 4 pm ET
Venue:Home Depot Center, Carson, CA
Rematch
The first meeting between the Sol's Marta and Breakers' Kelly Smith drew a crowd of 8,031, the second largest in WPS's short history, last Saturday. Smith scored the first goal of the game for Boston, which won, 2-1, and moved into second place, one point behind the Sol. The rematch couldn't come soon enough for Sol keeper Karina LeBlanc, who allowed the first two goals of the season. "Anytime you lose," the Canadian said, "you want the chance to avenge that as soon as possible. We have that chance ..."

Chicago vs. Sky Blue FC, 6 pm ET (Fox Soccer Channel)
Venue:Toyota Park, Bridgeview, IL
Spotlight
One of top players taken in the January draft has been Chicago midfielder Brittany Klein. After finishing up with Santa Clara University in 2007, Klein played with the W-League champion Pali Blues in 2008 and was then taken by the Red Stars in the second round of the 2009 draft. Klein scored the first goal of her WPS career and added two assists in the Stars' 4-0 win over the Breakers two weeks ago. Chicago, WPS's only unbeaten team, was off last week.
