Sky Blue FC comes into their match against the Boston Breakers on a four-match shutout streak while the Breakers earned their first shutout of the season last week against the Spirit.
Both teams are without some of their primary weapons due to tomorrow’s USWNT vs CANWNT friendly but it still should be a very tough battle.
Week 7’s Player of the Week, Lianne Sanderson, will look to continue a streak of her own, assisting on the Breakers last four goals. With midfielder Heather O’Reilly and forward Sydney Leroux are not available due to international duties, Sanderson will look towards Katie Schoepfer, Kyah Simon and Joanna Lohman who account for four of the teams goals this season.
As for Sky Blue FC, their back line took a big hit during the national team call-ups as both Kelley O’Hara and Christie Rampone will be unavailable for this weekend’s match. With Brittany Cameron in goal and O’Reilly not on the pitch, look for Caitlin Foord to continue to take a more offensive role this week and Kendall Johnson to help anchor a very young defensive unit.
Score Prediction: Sky Blue FC 1, Boston Breakers 1.
