LGBT Soccer Roundup, May 2-4

LGBT Soccer WambachRobbie Rogers made his first road trip with the LA Galaxy main squad this past weekend, but didn’t see action. That and more in this week’s LGBT soccer roundup.

  • Much sooner than anyone expected, Robbie Rogers made the jump from the LA Galaxy II to the LA Galaxy on Saturday, making his first appearance in the 18 in this MLS season. While he never saw the field, it’s very possible that he was part of Bruce Arena’s second-half plans until Omar Gonzalez was taken out of the game as a precaution at halftime. The Galaxy lost 1-0 to the Colorado Rapids.
  • Rogers wasn’t the only season debut in LGBT soccer this past weekend, as Abby Wambach made her first appearance of the season for the Western New York Flash after being sidelined due to injury. Not only was it her first appearance, but it was against her wife Sarah Huffman and the Portland Thorns. Meleana Shim also made an appearance in the 1-1 draw between the two teams.
  • Both Joanna Lohman and captain Lianne Sanderson played a full ninety minutes in the Boston Breakers’ 1-0 loss to Sky Blue FC. Sanderson is off to England this week for an appearance with her national team as they take on Ukraine in Women’s World Cup Qualifying.
  • Lori Lindsey was a late-game substitute in the Washington Spirit’s 1-0 loss to the Seattle Reign
