Ted Torosian puts the game out of reach.


BOSTON(AP) Ted Torosion rambled for two touchdowns through the wind and rain after an interception and fumble recovery by Oakland as the Invaders snapped the Boston Breakers four-game winning streak with a 26-7 United States Football League victory Sunday.

Richard Crump put the Breakers, 4-2, ahead 7-0 early in the second quarter with a 1-yard plunge before Torosion got his first touchdown on a 2-yard run with 1:45 left in the period. Kevin Sheas extra point attempt was blocked, leaving Boston ahead 7-6.

Torosions touchdown climaxed an 80-yard march started by Derrick Martins interception in the end zone of Johnnie Waltons pass.

Crumps fumble on Bostons first play after the kickoff was recovered by Matt Elisara at the Boston 22-yard line. Five plays later Shea connected on a 28-yard field goal to give Oakland, 3-3, the lead for good, 9-7, as time ran out in the first half.
