THE BLACK CARD MAY 29, 2014
Rookies Jazmine Reeves and Nkem Ezurike stole 3 points from the Portland Thorns Wednesday, May 28th giving the Thorns their worst lost ever. On top of that, the Thorns let Reeves get a hat trick! No doubt she had trouble sleeping last night as she replayed her amazing game in her head over and over. Even rookie Ezurike’s great goal was assisted by Reeves.
RANDOM BITS ABOUT OUR PHENOMENAL ROOKIES:
She is the first Virginia Tech player drafted by a professional women’s soccer team and this month she posted on Twitter “So as a graduation present, I get to go on a trip. Anywhere I want. Where do I go?!?! Any suggestions?” Let’s Tweet suggestions to Jazmine at @JDReeves5! I’m thinking Spain (Barcelona), Italy (A.S. Roma) and/or England (Arsenal) in that order. LOL.
NKEMJIKA NATALIE EZURIKE
As a youth player in 2008, Nkem was described by the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Technical Study Group as follows: She’s “tall, strong and physical, shows well for the ball (support), good distribution…” Well, duh! But, other than that, did you know she’s just like the rest of us per her recent Tweet… @Nkemg22 Just locked myself out of the house!

Congrats to Jazmine, Nkem and the entire Boston Breakers team for pulling out a win! I knew you had it in you. Now, let’s get another 3 points! #PlayOffsArePossible
