LGBT Soccer Roundup, April 25-27

It was an awesome weekend for LGBT soccer pros as Boston’s captain Lianne Sanderson had a brace in their victory and was named the NWSL Player of the Week! Congrats!

  • Robbie Rogers didn’t play in LA Galaxy II’s road draw against Arizona United Friday night, but he saw nearly a full 90 minutes in their 3-0 win over the Orange County Blues. It makes one wonder if he’ll be on the road with the senior team soon as they begin a series of three games on the road.

  • The Myrtle Beach Mutiny kicked off their regular season with a 3-2 loss to Jacksonville United of the neighboring Sunshine Conference. Jacksonville was a tough opponent as 2011 league champions and 2013 conference champions.

  • Lori Lindsey played the first half in a 1-0 victory for the Washington Spirit over the Chicago Red Stars.

  • Both Meleana Shim and Sarah Huffman were late-game substitutes for the Portland Thorns as they defeated Kansas City FC 3-1.

  • It was team captain Lianne Sanderson with the brace as the Boston Breakers took down Sky Blue FC 3-2. Sanderson was involved with the third goal as well with an assist to teammate Julie King. Both Sanderson and Joanna Lohman played a full 90 and the Breakers take on Sky Blue again this upcoming weekend.

  • Megan Rapinoe was available on the bench but did not see any action in the Seattle Reign’s 2-0 shutout of the Houston Dash.
