Everybody hurts sometimes.

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.

The Breakers are in a trough right now. 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.
