STOPPED IN STOPPAGE
Breakers downed by Pride
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Boston Breakers surrendered two goals after the 90th minute in falling, 2-1, to the Orlando Pride before a 5,842 crowd at Camping World Stadium Sunday night.
The match, delayed 55 minutes due to rain, went Bostonís way early. The Breakers (1-10-1, 4 points) took the lead on Mollie Pathmanís fifth-minute goal. Pathman capitalized on an Orlando (6-6-0, 18 points) mistake, finishing after Kaitlyn Savage lost control of the ball, for her first professional goal.
The Breakersí Jami Kranich stopped a shot from distance by Sarah Hagen in the 20th minute, cut off a cross from Kristen Edmonds in the 31st minute, and made a sprawling save on an Edmonds free kick in the 35th minute.
The Breakers had chances in the second half. German international Eunice Beckmann barely missed with a 20-yarder in the 48th minute, then redirected a Stephanie McCaffrey cross over the bar in the 65th minute. McCaffrey had two chances in the 87th minute, her shot stopped by defender Toni Pressley, and rebound saved by Savage.
Edmonds provided the Orlando goals on a 90th-minute free kick and a chip over Kranich in the final seconds.
