Independence 0, Atlanta Beat 0
My real job kept me away from the Independence's home opener at John A. Farrell Stadium last night. But the scoreless draw against Atlanta, also an expansion team this season, didn't lack for entertainment.
My Philly.com colleagues Litty Samuel and Esther Lee put together a video report from the game that you can see in the player at right. The piece includes postgame interviews with Independence forward Amy Rodriguez and goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc, and Beat forward Tobin Heath. There's also analysis from Inquirer soccer writer Marc Narducci.
If any of you were at last night's game, please post comments about how the atmosphere was. The attendance was announced as 6,028, which was the largest crowd of the weekend in WPS by far.
