FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) Boston’s Kristine Lilly missed a penalty kick in the 32nd minute as the Breakers and Washington Freedom played to a scoreless tie yesterday in Women’s United Soccer Association action.
The Breakers (2-3-3), playing their first game at CMGI Field, controlled the first half and outshot Washington 10-2. But they blew their best opportunity when Lilly fired over the crossbar on her penalty shot. The Breakers were awarded the penalty kick after Skylar Little tripped Dagny Mellgren in the box.
The Freedom (2-4-2), who have scored eight goals in eight games this season, were shut out for the second consecutive game.
Washington had a goal disallowed in the 53rd minute when Abby Wambach was ruled offside after slipping a roller past goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc.
Boston’s Maren Meinert appeared to have Washington goalkeeper Siri Mullinix beat in the 74th minute, but Mullinix got a hand on the ball and deflected it inches wide.
