Pride rally past Breakers in stoppage time
ORLANDO PRIDE 2, BOSTON BREAKERS 1
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Midfielder Kristen Edmonds converted two late goals to rally the Orlando Pride to a 2-1 win over the Boston Breakers at Camping World Stadium Sunday night.
The Pride (6-6-0, 18 points) moved into a tie for fourth place with the Chicago Red Stars, its opponent in a showdown for the final NWSL playoff place at Camping World Stadium Saturday.
Edmonds, who hit the post in the first half, scored on a free kick from the wing, bending the ball around a five-player wall and into the left side of the goal in the 90th minute. Jasmyne Spencer earned the free kick, Brooke Elby ejected after being issued her second caution on the play.
Edmonds then scored the deciding goal in stoppage time, after Boston netminder Jami Kranich mis-hit a goal kick. Substitute Leah Fortune one-timed a pass from just outside the penalty area. Edmonds ran onto the ball and chipped Kranich before colliding with the Breaker goalkeeper.
Forward Mollie Pathman gave Boston a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute, finishing after a mishandle by debutante goalkeeper Kaitlyn Savage.
