Red Stars right the ship with 2-0 win over Independence

Well, the Chicago Red Stars may have been eliminated from playoff contention last week, but no one would have guessed it Wednesday, as they bested the the Philadelphia Independence 2-0 at Toyota Park. Marian Dalmy's first WPS goal in the second-half would highlight the victory, and help break the team's three-game losing streak.

Veronica Boguete would start things off for the Red Stars (6-11-6), scoring in the 4th minute off  a Casey Nogueira free kick to give the team an early lead.

Dalmy would then chime in at the 54h minute to give the team a much-needed cushion at 2-0. Coupled with fantastic goal play from keeper Jillian Loyden, who picked up her sixth shutout of the season, it would prove to be more than enough.

The Independence (10-9-4) move on to face FC Gold Pride before heading into the WPS Playoffs. The Red Stars conclude their season Sunday at Toyota Park against the Washington Freedom.
