MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] The regular-season champion Western New York Flash features such stars as Brazilian Marta, Canadian Christine Sinclair and young American Alex Morgan, but it will be tested against the Philadelphia Independence in Saturday's WPS final. The Independence is led by 24-year-old Veronica Boquete, the surprise winner of the league's Michelle Akers Player of the Year award.

Boquete didn't arrive in Philadelphia from Spanish club Espanyol until June 7 but helped keep the Independence in the league regular-season title race until the last week of the season.

She first came to the USA in 2010 when she starred for the W-League champion Buffalo Flash, scoring two goals in the championship and finishing the summer with WPS's now-defunct Chicago Red Stars.

Philadelphia is 10-1-1 since Boquete arrived to join fellow Spaniard Laura del Rio with the Independence.

Boquete scored five goals and a team-high four assists in only 11 appearances.
