Breakers Recap

Posted by julieg13 on May 9, 2009

The past two games for the Breakers have shown the fans the best and worst that our team has to offer. Thankfully the bad only lasted one game. The Breakers 2-1 victory over the LA Sol this past weekend overshadowed the slightly out of character 4-0 loss to the Chicago Red Stars on April 25th.

Last Saturday a crowd 8,031 came out to support the Breakers against the Los Angeles Sol, who were at the point both undefeated and never had been scored upon. There had been a lot of hype about the game because of the Sol’s impressive start and the star power of Marta. Within 90 minutes the Breakers put an end to that impressive record. Kelly Smith, who continues to show her remarkable skills, opened the scoring up in only the second minute of play. The scored remained 1-0 through the first half until Kristine Lilly put number two on the board in the 55th minute. The Sol tried to return fire in 64th minute with a goal from Brittany Bock, but one was not enough.

Recap of the past couple weeks:

The Bad:
1. Lossing 4-0 to Chicago- No need to go into detail.

The Good:
1. Kelly Smith named WPS player of the Month for April
2. Kelly Smith has scored in every game she has played in
3. Being the first team to score on the Sol
4. Being the first team to beat the Sol
5. Being one win away from being in first

Sunday’s rematch against the Sol will be The Breakers second game in a row to show the league and the fans why we are the team that deserves to be in first and the team that will fight for it.

Breakers Bring “A” Game for Home Crowd

Posted by julieg13 on April 14, 2009

Kelly Smith
        The Breakers home opener was exactly what the fans wanted, but better weather would be appreciated next game. After a disappointing first loss to FC Gold Pride the Breakers came back fighting. They looked much more like the team that everyone expected them to be with a 2-0 win over St. Louis Athletica.

        Once again Kelly Smith was a force on the field and was instrumental in the two goals.
