[WPS] U.S. World Cup stars Abby Wambach and Megan Rapinoe combined for all three goals and led magicJack into Saturday's super semifinal of the Women's Professional Soccer playoffs at the Philadelphia Independence with a 3-1 win over the Boston Breakers before 2,057 fans in Boca Raton, Fla.

WPS Rookie of the Year Christen Press helped out, assisting on Wambach's first goal and feeding Rapinoe with a cross for the third magicJack goal.

MagicJack dominated the game, but Boston equalized on Keelin Winter's goal in the 31st minute.

Wambach, the magicJack player-coach, put the South Florida team back ahead from the penalty spot in the 59th minute after Sarah Huffman was taken down by U.S. national team defender Amy LePeilbet in the area.

    For the record, the foul in the box that led to the PK was on Taryn Hemmings, not Amy LePeilbet.
