[WPS] The first-place Los Angeles Sol looks to complete a sweep of its three-game series with struggling Sky Blue FC when it travels to New Jersey on Saturday. For a look at all the weekend action ...

Saturday, June 13
Washington Freedom vs. Chicago Red Stars, 4:30pm ET

The Freedom returns home after losing for the first time in six games on Sunday when it fell at Los Angeles, 3-1. The Red Stars' winless streak stands at five games.

Sky Blue FC vs. Los Angeles Sol, 7 pm ET (NBCU)
Venue: Yurcak Field, Piscataway, NJ
WPS's leader faces the last-place team for the third and final time in the regular season. So far it's Marta 3, Sky Blue FC 0 as the Brazilian star scored both goals in the first meeting, a 2-0 Sol win, and had the only goal in the rematch, another Los Angeles victory.

SPOTLIGHT: Frenchwoman Camille Abily has scored goals in four consecutive games and now leads WPS with six goals -- as many goals as Sky Blue FC has scored all season.

Sunday, June 14
Boston Breakers vs. Saint Louis Athletica, 6 pm ET (FSC)
Venue: Harvard Stadium, Cambridge, MA
The Athletica's attack has picked up since it first traveled to New England early in the season. The 2-0 loss was the second of three games without a goal. Its 1-0 win over Sky Blue on Sunday moved it into fourth place and gave it seven goals in its last five games. Boston has not recorded a win since defeating Los Angeles on May 2.

PLAYER MOVES: FC Gold Pride, which is idle this week, has activated its assistant coach, Brazilian Sissi. She represented Brazil at three Women's World Cups and played for the WUSA's San Jose CyberRays. She coaches in the Bay Area and has been playing this season for the WPSL's California Storm.
