On Wednesday, the Boston Breakers announced that they had signed Libby Stout. Stout was waived by the Breakers in May, but will return to serve as a goalkeeper replacement for Abby Smith.

Smith, who was recently called up to the U.S. women’s national team for the pair of June friendlies in Scandinavia, is currently sidelined after a platelet rich plasma injection in her right knee. Smith missed most of last season after she suffered a strained ACL and torn patellar tendon in a non-contact injury during a May 2016 match.

Most signs are pointing to Sammy Jo Prudhomme starting in goal for Boston this weekend against the North Carolina Courage. While his words are no guarantee of Prudhomme’s NWSL debut, head coach Matt Beard told The Bent Musket, “Sammy Jo’s been fantastic. She’s been patient. I’m actually excited to see her on the pitch because she’s really impressed me this year.”

The Breakers will host the North Carolina Courage on Saturday, June 24 at home. The team will also hold its Pride Night on June 24.
