Chicago Red Stars goalkeeper Jillian Loyden is representing the team at tonight's 2010 WPS All-Star Game presented by U.S. Coast Guard Reserve.

"I was definitely shocked and surprised," Loyden said is a release. "There are so many talented players in this league, and to be chosen is an honor. It should be a lot of fun to play with my Red Stars teammates and my teammates of the past."

Loyden, midfielder Karen Carney and forward Cristiane represent the Red Stars for the WPS All-Star Game, which takes place at 7 p.m. at KSU Soccer Stadium in Kennesaw, Ga. The match is televised on Fox Soccer Channel, and preview coverage starts at 6:30 p.m.

Loyden had a successful offseason when she posted a 7-2-1 record and three shutouts to earn Australia Westfield W-League Goalkeeper of the Year honors when she was on loan with the Central Coast Mariners.

This year Loyden is taking on her larger role in stride. She has played in every minute of 11 matches, has posted three shutouts, 37 saves and a 0.91 goals against average.
