The U.S. Women's National Team recorded another one of their big wins, blasting six past South Korea at Sahlen's Stadium in Cary, North Carolina.

The scoring came early and it came often, starting with a third minute goal from Samantha Mewis, followed by another goal in the 20th minute. For the second, Lindsey Horan put a ball into the box and it ended up at the feet of Mewis, who scored from close range at the stadium where she plays with her club, North Carolina Courage.

So. The Boston Breakers are sitting at eighth in the league with a 2-4-2 record. Their last five games are all losses or draws after what seemed like a pretty bright start to the season. They've shown that they can score in games; what they need now is to show they can hold on to a lead and not cough up equalizers or winning goals.
