Boston Sends Sydney Leroux to Seattle Reign FC for Kristie Mewis

Seattle Reign FC acquired forward Sydney Leroux from the Boston Breakers yesterday in exchange for midfielder Kristie Mewis.

Boston also received goalkeeper Michelle Betos and the Reign’s first and second round selections in the 2015 NWSL College Draft.

Mewis was acquired by Seattle for forward Amy Rodriguez last Wednesday.

Leroux scored 11 goals in 19 games, including four game-winners last season for the Breakers.

The trade sends both Leroux and Mewis closer to home. Mewis was selected third by FC Kansas City in the 2013 NWSL Draft. She started and played in all 20 matches for the Blues last season, scoring once.
