The Boston Breakers have waived forward Ketlen Wiggers. The Brazilian international played one game for the Breakers this season, starting in the team's first game against the Portland Thorns and subbing out in the 61'.

According to general manager Lee Billiard, "Ketlen was having some issues with being away from her home in Brazil. Ketlen committed herself to the Breakers and was trying to get through her homesickness. However, after multiple conversations, we concluded it would be best for Ketlen that she is allowed to return to Brazil."

Throughout preseason and in her debut for Boston, Wiggers was used as a right forward and asked to both provide some service into the box and run in to create scoring opportunities. Coach Tom Durkin brought Wiggers to the team in December of 2014, hoping to add a measure of control and technical ability to the front line.

According to league rules, teams may waive players based on performance at any time prior to the roster freeze date, September 1. After this date semi-guaranteed contracts become guaranteed.

The team did not comment on whether they would call up an amateur or search for a new contract player to bring the roster back up to 20.
