(Aug. 14, 2017) – The Boston Breakers announced today that they have waived forward Emilie Haavi.
“Emilie has struggled to adjust to life in America and was homesick. As much as we wanted her to stay, we mutually agreed it was best for her to return home to Norway,” Boston Breakers head coach Matt Beard said. “She will be missed, and I would like to wish her well for the future.”
The 24-year-old Baerum, Norway native played in seven matches for the Breakers, logging 458 minutes. She signed with the Breakers on Oct. 31, 2016. Haavi recently played with the Norwegian Women’s National Team at the 2017 UEFA Women’s Championship.
The Breakers return home Wednesday, Aug. 16 to take on the Houston Dash. Tickets to all Breakers home games can be purchased by calling 617-945-1704 or by visiting breakerstickets.com.
