BOSTON – Former UConn women’s soccer standout Riley Houle (Columbia, Conn.) was called up by the Boston Breakers of the National Women’s Soccer League on June 26, as announced by the organization.
A First Team All-Conference and NSCAA/Continental Tire All-Northeast Region First Team selection in 2014, Houle ranked second on the Huskies with six goals and 17 points in her final season in a UConn uniform. Connecticut posted a record of 14-5-5 and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament a season ago after securing the 2014 American Athletic Conference Tournament crown.
The midfielder is no stranger to the WPSL, having played for the New England Mutiny from 2008-12. She joined the team as a junior in high school, becoming one of the youngest players to ever suit up for the Mutiny.
At UConn, she played in 78 games, earning 61 starting assignments. She rounded out her four-year career with 17 total goals and 13 assists, including three game-winning scores. The Columbia, Conn. native enjoyed her finest season as a senior, earning a spot on the conference’s All-Tournament team.
This season, the Breakers own a 3-6-2 record and will return to the pitch on July 18 against the Chicago Red Stars.
