[WPS] Last week Boston and St. Louis played to a 1-1 tie in a clash of first-place teams. This week, it's Sky Blue FC against FC Gold Pride in another top-of-the-table clash. For a look at all four Saturday games in Women's Professional Soccer ...

Sky Blue FC vs. FC Gold Pride (6 pm ET – FSC)
The top two teams in WPS face off as Sky Blue FC and FC Gold Pride, both with six points after three games, clash at Yurcak Field. Two weeks ago, FC Gold Pride won, 3-1, in its home opener. It became the first team to win back-to-back games when it followed up that win with a 2-1 victory over Atlanta in Castro Valley.

Boston Breakers vs. Chicago Red Stars (6 pm ET)
Chicago has outshot opponents 51-27 in the first three games this season but has scored just one goal in three games. In 2009, the Red Stars went five games and 457 minutes without scoring in late April and May.

Philadelphia Independence vs. Atlanta Beat (6 pm ET)
Since meeting on Week 1 -- a 0-0 tie in front of over 6,000 fans at West Chester University -- the teams have gone in opposite directions. Philadelphia notched a win and a tie to remain undefeated, while Atlanta sits at 0-2-1 following two losses. This is the last of four games on the road for Atlanta before the Beat opens its new stadium in suburban Kennesaw on May 9.

Washington Freedom vs. St. Louis Athletica (6:15 pm ET)
The first WPS-MLS doubleheader of the season takes place at RFK Stadium with the Freedom hosting St. Louis following D.C. United's game against the New York Red Bulls. Of concern to the Freedom is its defensive record. It's allowed six goals in three games. It had the worst defense in WPS last year.
