Can Rose Lavelle help Boston put the ball in the net?

As we come to the close of the 2017 NWSL season, there's a lot to contemplate about the Boston Breakers. They have three games left and are currently on a four-game losing streak with a 3-11-7 record for 9th place overall. They've had injuries galore, including the hamstring injury that derailed Rose Lavelle's rookie season and forced the team to rearrange the rest of their season.

Orlando's recent results are a mixed bag too, with a loss, tie, and a win, although that win was an exultant 3-1 handling of the previously invincible-seeming North Carolina Courage.

For the last two seasons, the Boston Breakers have sat at the bottom of the NWSL table. If early results in 2017 are any indication, this might be the year the Breakers break that pattern.
