May. 11, 2003
ATLANTA (AP) _ Maribel Dominguez scored in the 75th minute to give the Atlanta Beat a 1-1 tie with the San Diego Spirit on Saturday night.
Dominguez, the WUSA's leading scorer with six goals, took a pass from Abby Crumpton and found the bottom left corner of the goal, ending Atlanta's scoreless streak at 188 minutes.
Julie Fleeting opened the scoring for San Diego (2-1-2) in the 67th minute, giving her goals in four straight games. Fleeting deflected a corner kick from Shannon MacMillan past goalkeeper Briana Scurry.
Atlanta (2-1-2), which scored 11 goals in its first two games, avoided its second straight shutout loss. Before Dominguez' goal, the Beat had not scored since the 67th minute of their tie against Washington on April 26.
