Saturday, April 17
Chicago vs. Saint Louis (8 pm ET)
Chicago goalkeeper Jillian Loyden was the back-up to Athletica's Hope Solo in 2009. The Red Stars expect to have Megan Rapinoe and Formiga back in the line-up after missing opening weekend.

FC Gold Pride vs. Sky Blue FC (10 pm ET)
FC Gold Pride's attack with Marta, Christine Sinclair and Tiffeny Milbrett was held scoreless at St. Louis. Dutch national team captain Daphne Koster and UConn rookie Brittany Taylor stepped into the Sky Blue FC backline, which lost Jen Buczkowski to Philadelphia in the expansion draft and Christie Rampone to maternity leave, and helped keep Chicago off the scoreboard last week.

Sunday, April 18

The 2009 top draft pick Amy Rodriguez and popular defender Heather Mitts return to Harvard Stadium. Rodriguez scored only one goal for the Breakers and was traded to Philadelphia, while Mitts signed a three-year contract in the offseason as a free agent with the Independence.

Washington vs. Atlanta (7 pm ET)
The Beat hopes to have young Swiss star Ramona Bachmann available after she missed the opener at Philadelphia due to illness.
