[WPS] Attendance for the four weekend games in Women's Professional Soccer averaged only 3,086, the lowest for weekend play since the league launched in March 2009. The smallest crowd was 2,906 for the expansion Philadelphia Independence's 3-1 win over the Washington Freedom on Sunday afternoon.

The Independence rallied for three second-half goals in the span of 13 minutes. U.S. national team midfielder Lori Lindsey set up Allison Falk and Lianne Sanderson after Amy Rodriguez evened the score in the 55th minute.
