It's a quick turnaround for the Boston Breakers this week as they just played a midweek game against the Houston Dash (a very disappointing 3-1 loss) and will now have to set themselves to play the Orlando Pride.

Playing the Dash was probably their best chance to pick up points as they were without key midfielders Carli Lloyd and Morgan Brian, but their own injuries took too severe a toll and they made several critical mistakes without being able to put the ball on frame themselves.

The league is too slow to announce disciplinary measures.

This past weekend in NWSL, the Portland Thorns played away at the Chicago Red Stars. When young Thorns rookie Tyler Lussi subbed on in the 61', she almost immediately fouled Red Stars midfielder Danny Colaprico during a tussle for the ball, grabbing a handful of her braid and yanking Colaprico back, then stepping on her arm.
