Friday, May 14
Boston vs. FC Gold Pride (7:30 pm ET)
FC Gold Pride looks to become first WPS team to win five straight games • The Breakers are winless in their last four games since opening with a win over Washington.

Saturday, May 15
Chicago vs. Philadelphia (7 pm ET)
The Independence saw its four-game unbeaten streak to start the season end last week against the Athletica. • Red Star Casey Nogueira is tops in the league among rookies with two goals. •  Philadelphia's Allison Falk has two goals, the most among defenders in the league.

Sunday, May 16
Saint Louis vs. Sky Blue FC (4 pm ET)
Saint Louis was 3-0 against Sky Blue FC during the regular season last year before dropping a 1-0 decision in the Super Semifinal. • Scoring has been a problem for Sky Blue FC, which has only four goals (one of them an own goal) in five games.

Atlanta vs. Washington (6 pm ET-FSC)
Abby Wambach, who leads the league in assists with six, broke her nose in the Freedom's 0-0 tie with Boston last week. • The Beat hopes to avoid becoming the first WPS team ever to lose five straight games. In 2009, FC Gold Pride had a four-game losing streak. • Atlanta has lost three consecutive one-goal games and is winless in its first five games but for the first time this season had the edge in shots (25-9) in the 1-0 loss to Sky Blue FC.
