A First for the WPS

Did you know that the No. 1 seed met the No. 2 seed for the first time in the three-year history of Women's Professional Soccer?

The No. 1 seed was the Western New York Flash and it beat Philadelphia in penalty kicks, 5-4, after a 1-1 tie in regulation Saturday night. Which means that the teams played 90 minutes of regulation. 30 minutes of overtime and the minimum five rounds of PKs to determine the winner. - Bill Iezzi
