Sky Blue and Breakers Play to Scoreless Draw

Ninety minutes of soccer didn't settle anything between Boston and Sky Blue as the match ended in a scoreless draw. It was the third meeting this season between the Breakers and SBFC, but the first to end in a tie.

Jen Branam for Sky Blue and Alyssa Naeher for Boston earned shutouts for their respective teams. There were plenty of shots for both teams. Sky Blue outshot the Breakers by a 24-17 margin, with 13 of those being on frame. Boston managed five shots on goal for the match.

Japanese national team player Aya Sameshima saw her first WPS action as a halftime substitution for the Breakers.

The Breakers are now 3-5-2 on the season. They travel to Atlanta next Sunday for their last match before the World Cup break. Sky Blue moves to 2-3-3. After taking next weekend off, they will host the Beat on the first midweek match of the season on June 22.
