On Saturday night, Seattle Reign claimed their 3rd consecutive win and secured their top place in the National Women's Soccer League with 30 points after beating Boston Breakers 2-1 at Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium.
Seattle Reign's forward Beverly Yanez opened up the goalscoring in the 24th minute of the game after she recovered Little's corner that was punched out by Boston goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Boston's chances of equalising were far and few throughout the entire game, but after 34 minutes, Kristie Mewis headed the ball past Reign goalkeeper Caroline Stanley, bringing them up 1-1.
The first half ended in a draw, but Seattle Reign midfielder Kim Little was able to score the winning goal in the 58th minute through a penalty kick – Boston defender Julie King tripped her up in the box.
Seattle Reign have rightfully maintained their top spot, and Boston Breakers find themselves at the bottom of the league. But, with plenty of matches still to come, who knows how things will end??
