[WPS] The first Saint Louis-Washington match remains the most-discussed game in WPS's short history, producing six goals, two suspensions and a season-ending injury to Athletica's Brazilian midfielder Daniela on a foul from the Freedom's Abby Wambach. The rematch takes place Saturday at the Soccer Park. For a look at all the weekend action ...

Saturday, June 20
Saint Louis vs. Washington, 2pm ET   
Venue: Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park, Fenton, MO
The game is a rematch of the 3-3 draw between the two teams in early May when Athletica midfielder Daniela was lost for the season when she suffered injured knee ligaments and a crack in the tibia of her right leg on a foul from the Freedom's Abby Wambach.
SPOTLIGHT: The Freedom, whose defense has been its weakness, added U.S. international Ali Krieger from German power FFC Frankfurt for the remainder of the WPS inaugural season. A foot injury limited her to only four games in 2008-09, her second season in the Bundesliga, but she helped the Freedom hold Chicago scoreless last Saturday in their 0-0 tie last weekend.

Sunday, June 21
Los Angeles vs. FC Gold, 6 pm ET (FSC)
Venue: Home Depot Center, Carson, CA
The Gold Pride returned to California after playing to a 1-1 tie on Wednesday night at Boston. Canadian Christine Sinclair scored her fifth goal of the season for the Pride to join Boston's Kelly Smith in second place behind the Sol's Camille Abily, who has scored six goals.

Chicago vs. Boston, 4 pm ET
Venue: Toyota Park, Bridgeview, IL
Chicago plays at home for the first time in a month. Since they've been on the road, the Red Stars' winless streak has been extended to seven games and they have fallen in the WPS basement. Chicago won the first meeting, 4-0, on April 25. That score is still in the WPS recordbooks as the largest margin of victory.
