[WPS] Ashlyn Harris' stop on Laura del Rio's shot from the penalty spot gave the Western New York Flash a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia in the shootout in the Women's Professional Soccer final before 10,461 fans in Rochester, N.Y.

The first nine players had converted before Harris dived to her dive to stop the Spaniard's shot and give the expansion Flash the title.

The Flash finished the game with 10 players after Beverly Goebel was red-carded in overtime.

Amy Rodriguez had equalized for Philadelphia in the 88th minute but then missed several chances to win the game for the second-year Independence.

    Would have been a better game on grass. Good soccer venue. I thought both teams could have done more outreach to the fans. As it was, only Wambach [who wasn't playing] was meeting fans and signing autographs. Wambach had hundreds of people line up for an autograph. It was announced that some of the stars on the Flash and Freedom were staying after the game to sign autographs...for ten bucks. Marta is on a league of her own. She does so many subtle things, and, quicker with the rock than most players run without it. No wonder she's the 5 time FIFA World Player of the Year. I hope the WPS survives and continue to give these great players the opportunity to play.
