If you think of a goal as a touchdown, though... they only get one point rather than 6 (+ extra point), but a score of 14-14 in a championship football game would be quite respectable. (As in, equivalent to the 2-2 score in the women's final before the penalty kicks - say a final score of 21-14.)
I find the "fighting for control of the ball" to be pretty much as interesting as the stuff that happens in football when they're not scoring. Megan Rapinoe is so good at passing and ball control (there's really a lot of basketball in soccer, too), just seeing some of those passes was awesome. (Same as an amazing Brett Favre spiral that hits its mark exactly.)
I almost wonder if some of the problem is the pace, or the lack of replays that are such a feature of football, now. Soccer moves fast, at field level, but they don't have the endless time-outs and pauses in play so you don't often get to see in detail just how awesome that pass or that header or that footwork was. Because the camera has to stay pretty far out to catch where the ball is going.
