Mellgren gave Boston a 1-0 lead with her first goal in the fourth minute.
New York's Tiffeny Milbrett tied it game in the 15th minute, but six minutes later Meinert scored on a breakaway to put Boston ahead for good.
Meinert scored again in the 27th minute to give the Breakers a 3-1 lead.
Emily Janss pulled New York within a goal in the 39th minute. But in the second half, New York scored an own goal, as a clearing attempt by Ronnie Fair deflected off teammate Wynne McIntosh and into the net.
Mellgren added her second goal in the 58th minute.
