BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (May 15, 2010) – The Philadelphia Independence (3-1-2, 11 points) struck early and held on for a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Red Stars (1-4-1, 4 points) Saturday evening at Toyota Park in front of 5,645 fans.

In just the sixth minute, the Independence’s Joanna Lohman gave her side a 1-0 lead as she received an Amy Rodriguez pass in the center of the box and placed her shot into the lower right corner of the goal past Red Stars goalkeeper Jillian Loyden.  The goal was the first of two-year veteran Lohman’s career.

The Red Stars had a pair of excellent scoring opportunities in the first half but couldn’t convert.  The first came in the 16th minute as Karen Carney served a cross into the center of the box from the left wing.  Cristiane, with only Philadelphia goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc to beat, leapt to get her head on the ball but her shot went just wide right of the goal.  In the 40th minute, Chicago forward Casey Nogueira ripped a long range shot that went just high and wide right of the goal.
