[WPS] The first-place Los Angeles Sol hosts the second-place Washington Freedom in a battle of Women's Professional Soccer's two hottest teams. Both head into the Sunday game (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, live, 6 pm ET/3pm PT) with five-game unbeaten streaks. For all the weekend action ...

Sunday, June 7, 2009
Saint Louis vs. Sky Blue FC, 4 pm ET
Venue:Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park, Fenton, MO
The Athletica will debut at the Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park -- its new home for the remainder of the season and third venue this season. The Athletica and Sky Blue are the two lowest scoring teams in WPS, though Sky Blue got strong efforts from U.S. internationals Natasha Kai and Kacey White in its 2-1 win over Boston last week.

FC Gold Pride vs. Chicago, 8 pm ET
Venue:Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
The Red Stars return to action after being off last week. They needed the break, having lost their three previous games, all by shutout. The Pride lost at Washington, 3-1. It will be without Carrie Dew, who was red-carded in the Freedom game. Comcast SportsNet will broadcast the remaining home-and-home series between FC Gold Pride and Chicago, beginning with Sunday's game.

Los Angeles vs. Washington, 6 pm ET (FSC)
Venue:Home Depot Center, Carson, CA
The Sol won the first meeting at the HDC -- 2-0 in the WPS opening game in March. After a slow start, the Freedom attack has caught fire, scoring 13 goals in the last five goals -- more than any other team has scored all season.

SPOTLIGHT:The key to Washington's surge has been the outstanding play of French midfielder Sonia Bompastor, who was named the WPS Player of the Month Award for May. She scored two goals and three assists, including a stoppage-time header against Saint Louis that earned Washington a tie after being two goals down late in the game. She also notched two assists in Washington's 3-1 victory over FC Gold Pride.
