[WPS] In a rare match with a 10 a.m. kickoff, the WPS leading Los Angeles Sol -- no surprise here -- routed the last-place Chicago Red Stars, 4-0, to move closer to clinching the first playoff berth in the playoffs.

Brazilian Marta and Frenchwoman Camille Abily are now tied for the league lead with eight goals apiece after Marta scored twice and Abily struck once in the win.

Shannon Boxx had opened the Sol's offensive barrage in the 15th minute with her second goal of the season.

Japanese Aya Miyama had two assists to boost her lead in that category to five on the season.

Saint Louis Athletica improved its playoff chances with a 2-1 win at Sky Blue FC.
