While the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) offseason occurs, a handful of Sky Blue FC players have made the move overseas to continue developing their game in international competition. Throughout the NWSL offseason, we will keep you updated with the latest news and developments with our players.

Similar to our previous offseason report, only Sky Blue FC players who are competing in the Australia W-League saw action this past week, as Danish club Fortuna Hjørring (Nadia Nadim) and Japanese side Vedalta Sendai (Brittany Cameron) did not have any games on the slate.

In Australia W-League play, Sky Blue FC midfielder Sarah Killion and Adelaide United (2-2-3, 9 points) met a Perth Glory side (2-3-2, 8 points) that boasts defender Caitlin Foord and midfielder Nikki Stanton on its roster, along with forward Sam Kerr (who is rehabilitating a left foot injury).

Killion made the start and played a full 90 minutes for Adelaide, while Foord and Stanton were also in the Starting XI and played the entire match for Perth. Each player made contributions for their respective club, with a 1-1 scoreline remaining when the final whistle was blown.

With the result, Adelaide is currently locked up with Newcastle Jets in fourth place on the W-League table, while Perth is level with Western Sydney Wanderers in the sixth spot. Adelaide and Perth are separated by just one point in the standings.
