MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] What a difference a year makes! In 2009, FC Gold Pride went the entire season with only four wins.

On Friday night, it set a WPS record with its fifth straight win, a 2-1 victory over Boston Breakers in front of a crowd of 5,283 at Harvard Stadium.

The difference? Marta, whose two goals were her multi-goal game of the year since coming over from the disbanded Los Angeles Sol.

"This was a difficult game on the road because we played a ver y tough team in front of a great home crowd, we were fortunate enough to put two goals away," said Pride coach Albertin Montoya.  "They came at us hard and scored a tying goal, but our defense was excellent in the second half and prevented them from getting another one."

FC Gold Pride is 5-1-0 and holds a four-point lead over second-place Philadelphia, a 1-0 winner at Chicago on Saturday.
