Excuse our tardiness, but a certain USA-Canada game and some serious off-field fallout followed that distracted us a bit. But it’s important to get the news out there —

Boston Breakers midfielder Lianne Sanderson has been named The Equalizer’s Player of the Month for May, as voted on by the editors of the site. Sanderson had a dominant month of May, capped off by a three-assist performance on May 25 in a 3-0 win over the Washington Spirit. That performance also earned her Player of the Week for the final week of May.

Sanderson has been the heart of a strong Boston midfield and the primary playmaker for the Breakers. She now has six assists this season.

Sky Blue FC playmaker Sophie Schmidt finished second in voting for a stellar month of May that included four goals. Schmidt leads the league with five goals. Her Sky Blue FC teammate, goalkeeper Brittany Cameron, won the official NWSL Player of the Month award voted on by the media.

Christine Sinclair was our Player of the Month for April.
