Spirit Hope to Extend Home Unbeaten Streak

June 5, 2015

 

The Washington Spirit, Germantown’s hometown professional sports team, will put their 2015 home unbeaten streak on the line as they face the Boston Breakers on Saturday, June 6 at 7:00 pm at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown.

   The Spirit are 4-2-1 this season and are in second place with 13 points, three points ahead of Saturday’s opponent the Boston Breakers and two points behind the Chicago Red Stars. The Breakers are 3-3-1 this season.

   Last week the Spirit beat the Portland Thorns FC, 2-1, on goals from Amanda Da Costa and Crystal Dunn.

   Dunn continues to work hard to prove why she should have been joining teammates Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris on the U.S. Women’s National Team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup which is set to begin in Canada on Sunday. Dunn has six goals and two assists in eight games. She is leading the league in goals.

 

   During last week’s win, Dunn caused trouble for the Thorns’ backline the whole game and in the 28th minute with great pressure on the Thorns’ goalkeeper, Michelle Betos, Dunn snatched the ball away and scored on an open net and gave the Spirit a 2-1 lead heading into the second half.

   Washington’s first goal came in the 26th minute when midfielder Christine Nairn collected the ball and served it to Amanda Da Costa, who one timed it off the bounce into the back of the net.

   The second half was far more physical than the first and ended with five cards awarded between the two sides. In the last fifteen minutes of the game, the Spirit continued to press forward throwing attacking players at the Thorns backline including del Rio and Dunn.
