Scurry only gets two saves in shutout

BOSTON -- Briana Scurry made two saves and earned her

WUSA-leading seventh shutout of the season in the Atlanta Beat's

0-0 tie with the Boston Breakers on Saturday.

Atlanta had a number of scoring chances but Breakers goalie

Karina LeBlanc made seven saves to earn her second shutout this

season.

Atlanta, the WUSA's top team, improved to 9-3-5. Second-place

Boston is 7-4-5. Atlanta has 32 points with four games remaining,

while Boston has 26 points with five games left.

The Breakers appeared to score in the sixth minute but the goal

was waved off because of a hand ball. Dagny Mellgren crossed the

ball to the middle to Maren Meinert, but it bounced off her left

wrist before she scored.

In the final minute of the first half, LeBlanc made a big

left-hand save on Homara Sawa. In the 72nd minute, LeBlanc stopped

Ifeoma Dieke and followed that up two minutes later with a big

right-hand save on a shot in the slot from Sawa.

''Our defending was pretty good. We were a little unlucky on the

attack,'' Breakers coach Pia Sundhage said. ''You have to look at

the game Karina LeBlanc had. She came out with some huge saves and

that's the best game I've seen her play.''
