Waves add to California's domination
by Paul Kennedy, July 31st, 2011 8:27PM



[WPSL] Tanya Taylor's goal in the 101st minute gave the Orange County Waves a 2-1 win over the Chicago Red Stars for the 2011 Women's Premier Soccer League title on Sunday at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sports Complex in Illinois.

Brittany Klein, who played in WPS for the Red Stars, set up Taylor for the winning goal on a pass that beat the offside trap.

The Waves appeared to have the title wrapped up in regulation with a 1-0 lead on a goal by Kiki Bosio, but Red Stars midfielder Julie Ewing equalized in the 88th minute.

The Waves are the eighth California team to win the WPSL title in its 14-year history.
