Hanks scores big goal for new team

[WPS] Kerri Hanks, the 2006 and 2008 Hermann Trophy winner at Notre Dame, scored her first goal since being traded from Saint Louis to Sky Blue, striking in stoppage time to give the New Jersey team a 1-0 win over Chicago and keep it in fourth place. The weekend's other two games both ended in 1-0 wins for Washington over Saint Louis and Boston over FC Gold Pride.

The stunning strike by Hanks lifted Sky Blue FC's record to 6-6-4 for 22 points -- the first time the team has reached the .500 mark all season. Sky Blue FC has a 3-1-1 mark in its last five games.
