The Boston Breakers got two goals from Rosie White, but it wasn’t enough to snap their winless streak as FC Kansas City scored late for a 2-2 draw in front of a crowd of 2,510 at Jordan Field in Boston, Massachusetts.

The draw means that the Breakers winless streak extends to four games, while FC Kansas City snapped its four game losing streak. The Blues earned their first point since a tie in Seattle on June 24.

Both sides were without key players because of international duty at the Tournament of Nations, which concluded last night. KC was without captain Becky Sauerbrunn and forward Sydney Leroux, while Boston was without starting goalkeeper Abby Smith and rookie forward Margaret Purce. All four were in camp with the United States for the four-team tournament.

Breakers rookie goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme started in Smith’s absence, riding a Breakers-record 316 consecutive minutes shutout streak she set earlier this season when Smith was out injured.

The record did not last very long in the match, however, as Maegan Kelly put FC Kansas City on the board first in the 21st minute. Midfielder Desiree Scott started the play, with an impressive 60 yard run up the heart of the field and through the Boston defense. Scott then passed it out wide to Christina Gibbons, who slotted it across the face of the goal and to Kelly for the score.

The Breakers responded almost immediately, though, evening the score in the 26th minute. White took a pass from Katie Stengel and launched a left-footed shot from some distance toward the near post top corner that bounced off the post and into the net.

White scored her second in the 30th minute off a short corner kick played to forward Adriana Leon. Leon passed it to white, who chipped it softly over the Kansas City defense and Barnhart to make it 2-1.

White’s first half performance earned her a hug from Rose Lavelle, still out with a hamstring injury, at halftime.

But Kansas City would not go quietly. In the 81st minute, defender Sydney Miramontez sent a long ball over to the top to Erika Tymrak on the left wing. Tymrak sent a cross into the area that bounced out of the reach of Prudhomme, as well as two Kansas City players in the box, to even the score. Miramontez signed with the team on Wednesday and started in place of Sauerbrunn. She earned her first professional assist on Friday.

It’s Tymrak’s second goal of the year and the second time she has equalized a match after the 80th minute this season. She previously salvaged a draw for KC vs. Orlando on May 7.

Breakers captain Julie King made her 103rd appearance for the Breakers, surpassing Kristine Lilly’s club record across the WUSA and WPS edition of the Breakers. King’s record includes Boston’s time in the WPSL Elite in 2012 as well as the NWSL. Lilly was at the game in Boston to help honor King.
