FROM ICELAND TO BOSTON
Breakers bringing in central defender
The Boston Breakers have signed former FC Kansas City defender Amanda Frisbie, the team announced Tuesday.
Frisbie, signed as a discovery player, made three appearances for FC Kansas City last season, then played nine matches for Stjarnan’s Úrvalsdeild championship team in Iceland.
Friesbie, played four games (two starts) for the Western New York Flash in 2015.
“I'm delighted that we have managed to bring Amanda to Boston,” Breakers coach Matt Beard said. “She’s done very well in Iceland, playing as a center back. We monitored her progress overseas, and she will be another good addition to the roster.”
Frisbie, 24, a native of Keller, Texas, was named a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist and an NSCAA First Team All-America for the University of Portland in 2013 (the Pilots’ first first-team All-American since 2009). Frisbie was selected No. 7 overall in the 2014 NWSL draft by the Seattle Reign, missing the season with an injury.
