Breakers Win Again Over Freedom

With goals from Kelly Smith, Jordan Angeli, and Lauren Cheney, Boston defeated Washington 3-1. It was the fifth victory in six games for the Breakers, who now have a solid hold on 3rd place. The Breakers moved to .500 for the first time since very early in the season at 6-6-4.

In addition to scoring a goal, Angeli and Cheney also picked up an assist each. It's been quite a month for Angeli, who has scored four goals and two assists during July.

Washington's only goal was scored by Abby Wambach. The Freedom's winless streak extends to 10 games, tying a record set by FC Gold Pride during the 2009 season, and their fifth straight loss ties a record set by the Atlanta Beat earlier this season.

Boston will host Atlanta on Wednesday night, while Washington goes home to face 2nd place Philadelphia, also on Wednesday evening.
