[WPS] The expansion Atlanta Beat is winless in six games following its 2-0 loss at home to the Washington Freedom before only 3,112 fans at its new KSU Soccer Stadium.

Abby Wambach broke the WPS single-season assist record -- in only six games -- with her seventh assist to go along with a goal for the Freedom.

The rematch between of last year's Super Semifinal between Saint Louis and Sky Blue FC ended in a 2-2 tie played before 2,346 fans, the fourth lowest crowd in WPS history.

Finnish international Laura Kalmari buried a pair of goals for Sky Blue FC, but English forward Eniola Aluko's fourth goal of the season -- a league high -- in the 85th minute earned the Athletica a draw.

WPS takes next weekend off due to international activity.

    The assist to the Wambach goal was from Sonia Bompastor who crossed to Wambach for the header goal. Bompastor returned to the field with staples in her forehead after a header collision with Atlanta's Zerboni, who was taken to the hospital. Wambach made the header after returning to play from a broken nose a week ago. You should be covering how tough the women are not just the men.

    I watched the Atlanta/Boston game on FSC and for the second week in a row the talk from the booth was all about Bachman. She is a nice young player who has some technical skills BUT shows poor tactical knowledge and is not strong on the ball. The next Marta she is not. She does not possess the speed, strength, toughness or tactical sense of Marta. Is her pro league experience really that good?
