MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] FC Gold Pride, which finished last in Women's Professional Soccer in 2009, temporarily took over first place on Saturday night with a 2-1 win over expansion Atlanta.

Despite playing without starters Christine Sinclair and Candace Chapman, who were Canada for its match against China in Chinngqong on Saturday -- 2-0 win for China -- the Pride edged the Beat.

Second-year player Carrie Dew scored the winning goal for the Bay Area team in the 90th minute.

“Would I rather have a loss and play well or get an ugly win? I’d rather get an ugly win,” said FC Gold Pride coach Albertin Montoya. “Three points goes a long ways and any given team can win."
