Kelly Smith named WPS Player of the Month for April
« on: May 01, 2009, 05:32:38 PM »
SAN FRANCISCO (May 1, 2009) – Kelly Smith of the Boston Breakers has won the first-ever WPS Player of the Month Award for April. The award was selected by team, media and online fan voting with each group accounting for one-third of the final tally. Nearly 1,000 fans voted at the league’s Fan Corner at http://fancorner.womensprosoccer.com/ to help select the monthly-award winner in the league’s Inaugural Season.

Smith notched three goals in April, striking once in each of the Breakers’ first three games, along with one assist, leading Boston to victory twice and keeping them close with a terrific second-half goal against FC Gold Pride in their opening game 2-1 loss. After playing for the English national team last Thursday, the Breakers rested Smith in their 4-0 defeat to the Chicago Red Stars.

Smith edged out the Los Angeles Sol’s star forward Marta – with whom she is tied atop the league leaderboard with three goals on the season – and Sol goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc in the final POTM results.
