Attendance: 7,984, TV: ABC

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 Shea's extra point attempt was blocked, leaving Boston ahead 7-6.

Torosion's touchdown climaxed an 80-yard march started by Derrick Martin's interception in the end zone of Johnnie Walton's pass.

Crump's fumble on Boston's 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.
