Amy Rodriguez Named Player of the Month for June

Philadelphia striker, Amy Rodriguez, has been named the WPS Player of the Month for June. Rodriguez scored five goals and added two assists for the month in leading the Independence to a 3-1-1 record in June and 2nd place in the standings. In a large part due to Rodriguez, Philadelphia has scored in 12 consecutive games, which is a WPS record.

Rodriguez, who is a member of the USWNT, was obtained from the Boston Breakers in an offseason trade. She also won Player of the Week honors twice during the month of June.
