The Boston Breakers managed to hold the North Carolina Courage scoreless for most of the first half, but Ashley Hatch’s third goal of the season was enough for the visitors to leave Jordan Field with a 1-0 win. With 3,209 in attendance for Boston’s Pride game, the Breakers suffered their fourth straight defeat to fall to 2-6-2 for the season.

North Carolina Courage midfielder Samantha Mewis provided her third assist of the season on Hatch’s first-half goal. Mewis was once again the key for the Courage midfield, leading her team with 58 passes and 35 passes in the Breakers’ half, as well as touches (74) and duels (17).

During the first half, the Courage dominated the game stats. They outshot the Breakers 11 to zero, and earned six corners to Boston’s two. By the end of the match, North Carolina had 17 shots to Boston’s 11.

Play evened out in the second half, with the Breakers looking for the equalizer. In the 59th minute, Breakers midfielder Tiffany Weimer managed a high cross back across the face of goal, and forward Natasha Dowie rose above Courage goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland to win the header. Unfortunately for the home side, Dowie’s header went wide. The 1-0 win was Rowland’s third clean sheet of the season.

Rowland had to come up with two more big saves against Boston in the second half, with another on Dowie in the 61st minute, and then on Breakers substitute Margaret Purce in the 81st minute.

Sammy Jo Prudhomme made her debut in goal for the Boston Breakers, and despite the 1-0 scoreline, kept the Breakers within striking distance for the second half. She finished the game with two saves, including a big one in the 40th minute on Courage forward Kristen Hamilton.

The Courage lead the league with 24 points and an 8-3-0 record. North Carolina gets a night off on Wednesday as most of the league plays a midweek game, then returns to action next Saturday, July 1 at home where they’ll face Sky Blue FC.

As for Boston, they’ll travel to Houston for Wednesday night’s match up against the Houston Dash, who just picked up their first win since April against the Orlando Pride.
