Sky Blue escapes from the cellar

[WPS] Sky Blue FC escaped from the Women's Professional Soccer cellar  with a 1-0 win over the Chicago Red Stars on Wednesday. The loss, combined with FC Gold Pride's 1-1 tie at Boston, left the Red Stars, winless in their last seven games, in last place.

Brazilian Rosana's unassisted goal in the 24th minute was all Sky Blue needed at Yurcak Field.

Canadian Christine Sinclair moved into a tie with Boston's Kelly Smith for second place in WPS with her fifth goal of the season, but the Breakers' Jenny Nobis equalizer in the 76th minute off a pass from Smith.

Smith, who has been hampered by a knee injury, entered the match in the 61st minute.
