Marta attracts attention
This was a special feature of the match: Amy LePeilbet (6), Angela Hucles (16) & Alex Scott (22) see to it that Marta's impact is minimized.
Manager, Tony DiCicco, his experience and taste for ball-skill in his players is apparent. DiCicco's teams win things -- University of North Carolina NCAA repeat National Champions; US Womens' National Team Olympic Gold Medalists (1996); and FIFA World Cup Winners (1999).
Accordingly, all the Breakers look comfortable on the ball; they keep a balance in their shape and their organization & commitment leave little space for opponents. (They are a two-touch side, now in 2nd place behind ... the LA Sol.)
Boston Breakers 2 - 1 LA Sol, May 2, 2009, at Harvard Stadium, Cambridge MA
