Breakers Return to Action Sunday at Sky Blue FC
Westwood, Mass. (May 29, 2009) - The Boston Breakers return to WPS action this weekend when they travel to Piscataway, N.J. to take on Sky Blue FC, Sunday at 6 p.m. The match can be seen live on Fox Soccer Channel as this week's "WPS Sunday on FSC" match.
Despite coming off a bye week, the Breakers (3-2-2, 11 points) remain in second place in the league standings, but are now six points behind the first-place Los Angeles Sol (5-1-2, 17 points) with a game in-hand. Boston still owns a one-point lead on third-place FC Gold Pride (3-4-1, 10 points).
The Breakers are unbeaten in its last three matches, including a 1-1 draw at home versus the Washington Freedom last time out on May 17. The team did take in a pair of friendly matches, winning 4-0 against WPSL teams Boston Aztec last Thursday, and SoccerPlus CT on Monday.
Sky Blue FC wrapped up a five-match road span and will play at Rutgers' Yurcak Field for the first time after opening the season with a pair of matches at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, N.J. Sky Blue FC has dropped a pair of one-goal decisions in the past two matches after claiming a 2-0 win at Chicago on May 10, its lone victory of the season.
This is the third of six Breakers matches scheduled to be broadcast by Fox Soccer Channel this season. Boston is 0-1-1 in matches covered by FSC, losing at FC Gold Pride in the season opener, 2-1 on April 5, and then drawing against the Washington Freedom, 1-1, on May 17 at home.
The sixth match was just announced last week when the league and FSC switched the telecast of the final regular season match on Aug. 9 from Saint Louis Athletica at FC Gold Pride, to Los Angeles Sol at Boston Breakers.
