The Boston Breakers have waived Brazilian forward Ketlen. The 23-year old started the opening match for the Breakers and played 61 minutes in what was her only appearance for the club. Difficulty adjusting to life in the Unites States was cited as the main reason the club and player parted ways.
“Unfortunately Ketlen was having some issues being away from her home in Brazil,” Breakers general manager Lee Billiard said in a club release. “Ketlen committed herself to the Breakers and was trying to get through her homesickness. However after multiple conversations, we concluded it would be best for Ketlen that she is allowed to return home to Brazil.”
The move opens up an international slot for the Breakers.
In Houston, forward-turned-defender Stephanie Ochs underwent surgery to repair her torn right ACL. Ochs suffered the injury early in the Dash’s 3-2 loss in Boston two weekends ago. Team physician Dr. Joshua Harris performed the surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital.
Ochs played 49 consecutive matches from the start of NWSL until finally missing the Dash’s most recent home loss to FC Kansas City. The only player left never to miss a match is Kansas City’s Jen Buczkowski. Ochs will miss the rest of the 2015 season.
