South Florida has been kind to Stanford grad Christen Press, who recorded her first professional hat trick to help magicJack beat the visiting Boston Breakers, 4-0, Saturday night at Florida Atlantic.
Abby Wambach, fresh off her World Cup effort, also scored as the MagicJack player-coach. Press easily had her best game of the season, creating the scoring chance for Wambach in addition to finding the net three times herself.
"I think we look at every game from here on out as a playoff game," Press told the Sun-Sentinal. "We're at a point in the season where it's win or we're not even going to be in the playoffs, so it was a big push for the whole team and I think we played our best soccer we have this whole season."
Playing for the Boston Breakers were former Stanford standouts Kelley O'Hara and Rachel Buehler, two more members of the USA World Cup team.
