“I’m very proud and humbled that I was able to make my childhood dreams come true,” Stanley wrote on social media in her retirement announcement.


Stanford senior midfielder Andi Sullivan won the MAC Hermann Trophy on Friday night, awarded to the best player in college soccer. The honor caps off a season in which Sullivan won an NCAA title a year after tearing her ACL.


Sullivan is a potential high draft pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft on January 18. She also has seven caps with the U.S. women’s national team.


The midfielder finished her Stanford career with 20 goals and 19 assists.


Thorns FC midfielder Dagný Brynjarsdóttir is pregnant, her agent announced on Friday. In a statement posted on Twitter Friday, Neverland Management said she plans to return to soccer at the end of 2018.


2017 NWSL MVP Sam Kerr delighted three young fans in Australia last week, joining them for a game of soccer in the park.


TEN Eyewitness News, an Australian news station, caught up with the boys after Kerr posted about the game on social media.

The Sky Blue FC forward posted on Twitter last week that the boys knocked on her door and asked her to play.
