Sky Blue FC have secured the inaugural Women's Professional Soccer league title by defeating premiers and favourites Los Angeles Sol in the final at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
The New Jersey-based side continued their improbable run to the title having scraped into the semi-finals with a win on the final day of the regular season.
A goal in the 16th-minute from USA midfielder Heather O'Reilly proved enough to separate the two sides despite the star quality of the home side which included Brazilian star Marta, Japan's Aya Miyama, China's Han Duan and experienced USA international Shannon Boxx.

Defending NCAA women's soccer champion North Carolina tallied three goals in the first 13 minutes of play Saturday night to spark a 7-2 victory for the No. 1-ranked Tar Heels over No. 3-ranked UCLA in the season opener for both teams. A crowd of 3,372 at Fetzer Field sat through a steady rainstorm throughout the night to witness what proved to be a very different game from the one the two played last December 5 in the NCAA semifinals, a 1-0 Tar Heel victory.
"Atlanta Beat General Manager Shawn McGee announced Gareth O’Sullivan as the first Head Coach of the Beat, a 2010 expansion team in Women’s Professional Soccer.
A native of Ballina, Ireland, O’Sullivan is a nationally respected coach with proven success at the youth, college and professional levels. Most recently he served as coach to Afturelding and KR in the Icelandic Premier League.
Prior to his years in Iceland, O’Sullivan coached collegiately in the United States. From 1997 to 2003, he led Christian Brothers University (Memphis, TN) women’s soccer team to five Gulf South Conference titles, en route to capturing the university’s first ever NCAA II national championship in 2002."
Its clear that McGee HAS NOT done his homework.
Why do you ask?
1. Call Chairman Guðjón Guðmundsson at KR and ask hard questions.
2. What happened at Christian Brothers University?
