Breakers trade Casey Short to Chicago

Receive draft pick in return for defender

 The Boston Breakers have acquired the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League College Draft from the Chicago Red Stars in exchange for the rights to defender Casey Short and a third-round pick in the 2015 NWSL College Draft.

(Oct. 29, 2013) - The Boston Breakers have acquired the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League College Draft from the Chicago Red Stars in exchange for the rights to defender Casey Short and a third-round pick in the 2015 NWSL College Draft.

The draft choice from Boston is Seattle Reign FC’s third-round selection in the 2015 draft, which the Breakers acquired from the Reign in a previous trade.

 

The deal was Boston’s third trade in less than two weeks. The Breakers acquired the No. 18 overall selection in the 2014 draft and a third-round pick in the 2015 draft from Seattle Reign FC on Oct. 23 in a trade that sent midfielder Mariah Nogueira in the other direction.

Prior to that, Boston picked up forward Courtney Jones on Oct. 17 in trade with FC Kansas City in which the teams also swapped first-round picks in the 2013 draft.

Short, 23, was the Breakers’ first-round draft pick (No. 5 overall) in the 2013 draft, but missed the entire 2013 NWSL season with a torn ACL. The Naperville, Ill. native suffered the injury Feb. 28 while playing for the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team against Norway in the Four Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain.

The Breakers now hold the Nos. 7, 11, 18, 20 and 28 overall selections in the 2014 draft.
