July 07, 2002|Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Julie Foudy scored on a penalty kick in second-half injury time to lift the San Diego Spirit past the Boston Breakers, 5-4, before 6,149 Saturday in the highest-scoring game in Women's United Soccer Assn.

The previous single-game scoring record was seven, accomplished three times in the league's two-year history.

Foudy put the penalty kick past goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc for her second goal of the game and third of the season. It came in the second minute of injury time after a foul was called on Boston's Chrisy McCann for a collision with the Spirit's Zhang Ouying in the penalty area.

The Breakers' Kristen Lilly had two goals and an assist as the teams played to a 3-3 halftime tie for the most goals combined in one half.

San Diego (3-7-3) ended a six-game winless streak and remained unbeaten against the Breakers (3-6-5) in five matches.
