UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Charmaine Hooper scored for the Atlanta
Beat as they tied the New York Power 1-1 Saturday night.
Atlanta (9-3-6) remains in first place in the WUSA, but would
have clinched a playoff berth with a win.
Hooper put the Beat on top in the 51st minute. Cindy Parlow hit
the post and the rebound went directly to Hooper. It was her eighth
goal of the season.
Shannon Boxx tied it in the 61st minute with her first goal of
the year after Margaret Tietjen hit a perfect cross on a free kick.
The Power (7-9-4) is tied with San Diego in fourth place.
