BOSTON BREAKERS 1, FC KANSAS CITY 0
ALLSTON, Mass. – With a goal off the head of Whitney Engen and a shutout from goalkeeper Libby Stout, the Boston Breakers earned their first win of the season, 1-0, against FC Kansas City Sunday night at Jordan Field.

The lone goal of the game came in the 19th minute and was Boston’s first of the season. In her first start, Brooke Elby worked down the right side of the field and saw her cross attempt deflect out for a corner. Kristie Mewis sent the ensuing ball to the far post where a running Engen timed her run onto the ball perfectly and out-jumped two FCKC defenders, heading it home for the lead.

The Breakers are now 1-5-0, 3 pts, while FC Kansas City is still winless at 0-4-2, 2pts.

CHICAGO RED STARS 2, SEATTLE REIGN 1
SEATTLE--Jen Hoy scored two goals, leading the Chicago Red Stars to a 2-1 win over the Seattle Reign at Memorial Stadium Sunday night.

Chicago took the lead in the 55th minute when a shot by Christen Press was stopped by Seattle goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer. However, the rebound fell right to the feet of Hoy, the former Princeton standout gently touching it inside the right post.

Hoy got her brace twelve minutes later, this time on an assist by DiBernardo, who hit a perfectly timed ball over the top of the backline to release her third-year teammate on the right side of the area, the game-winner coming courtesy of a calm finish past the onrushing Kopmeyer and inside the far post.

Chicago’s Alyssa Naeher narrowly missed out on setting a new all-time NWSL record for consecutive shutouts, as Kim Little’s penalty kick in the closing stages of the match denied the U.S. netminder her fifth in a row, after Julie Johnson was called for taking down Beverley Yanez.
