On the road at Kansas City Sunday, Boston’s Katie Schoepfer and Kristie Mewis each scored their first goals of this season while Jami Kranich made six saves to help lift the Breakers to a 2-0 win on the road against FC Kansas City. This win marked Boston’s first road win in two years and their first away win against FC Kansas City.

With 14 shots, six of which were on goal, the Breakers maintained offensive momentum throughout the game. In the 38th minute, Schoepfer scored of the rebound of her own shot. Boston sealed its victory with Mewis’ goal, which came with nine minutes left in the match.

The Breakers will hope to continue their winning form against the Houston Dash, who are only three points above Boston in the NWSL table. Houston, 3-8-4, is coming off of a 2-2 draw with the Western New York Flash. Denise O’Sullivan and Kealia Ohai capitalized on two of Houston’s 11 shots, but the Dash were unable to keep Western New York scoreless. The Flash twice came back to tie the match. Boston’s defense will have to stand firm, particularly against Ohai, who leads the Dash with five goals this season.

“Houston is a game we are looking forward to. They have all there international players back, so it will be a great test on how far we've come over the course of the season,” Boston Breakers head coach Matt Beard said. “We can take the positivity and confidence from our last two performances. We've been strong at home most of the season, and our supporters have been fantastic, Jordan Field isn't an easy place for teams to come to.”

With a win against the Dash, the Breakers will tie Houston on points for ninth place. This is the first time of the season Boston has faced the Dash. Boston has played Houston five times since the Dash entered the league in 2014, and the Breakers have secured two wins during the series. The last match between these two sides was the final game of the 2015 season. Boston lost, 1-0, to Houston at BBVA Compass Stadium.

The Breakers will go to the West Coast to take on Portland Thorns FC Sunday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m. ET. Boston then returns home to take on the Western New York Flash for the third time this season, and first at home, Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. ET.
