San Clemente's Zerboni honored

San Clemente's McCall Zerboni, a rugged role player who took a starring role when the Western New York Flash's stars were away on international duty, has been voted Women's Professional Soccer's Player of the Month in balloting by media and by fans.

Zerboni (San Clemente HS/UCLA) played the biggest role as the Flash (6-1-2) won all five of its May games to surge atop the WPS standings. She was WPS's Player of the Week after scoring twice and assisting a third goal in the Flash's 3-2 victory May 13 over Boston. The midfielder added an assist in a 2-1 win at Philadelphia on May 29.

Zerboni played for the L.A. Sol in 2009 and Atlanta Beat last season.
