Breakers Beat Abby’s Team 2-1, Share First PlaceBy: Angela | April 12th, 2010
Lauren Cheney scored the first goal of the season when the Breakers’ defeated the Washington Freedom on their own soil (or is it turf now ?) this past Saturday. Surprised, I was, in a sort of good way, to see Kelly Smith on the front line next to Cheney, but happy to see that she, like our new No. 8, did what all good forwards do: score goals.
In somewhat related news, one game in, Lauren Cheney has already tied Amy Rodriguez’s goal-scoring record as a Breaker. Both players have one goal each.
It appears as though Rodriguez’s mostly dry spell has continued in the fine city of Philadelphia. Amy’s new team Independence tied 0-0 with the other league newcomers, the Atlanta Beat.
Amy will be back in Boston this Sunday, where I hope to god loud chants of either “A-FRAUD!” or “YOU SUCK!” echo throughout Harvard Stadium. Chances are higher, though, that she will be greeted with high-pitched screams normally reserved for the likes of Justin Beiber.
