Breaking In

I haven’t shot soccer in a few years — been playing a hell of a lot more than photographing, that’s for sure. It’s easily my favorite sport after baseball, but being stateside, opportunities to photograph the world’s game are few and far between.

Here’s a few from the recently revived Women’s Professional Soccer league, featuring the hometown Boston Breakers and the visiting Chicago Red Stars. A frustrating loss for the Breakers, who were blanked, 2-0, by the then-winless Red Stars.
