LGBT Soccer Roundup, May 30-June 1

LGBT Soccer robbie RogersRobbie Rogers made it back onto the field in a big way this past weekend. That and the results for all the other out LGBT soccer players in our weekly roundup.

  • LA Galaxy defender Dan Gargan felt ill late in the first half of their match against the Chicago Fire, and Robbie Rogers was called in as a substitute. His wicked cross to Landon Donovan resulted in a game-tying goal and the assist and other great moves earned him “Hero of the Game” honors.
  • The Boston Breakers gave Joanna Lohman and Lianne Sanderson, well, breaks this past weekend with Lohman not playing and Sanderson serving as a sub in their 4-1 win over the Portland Thorns. Both Meleana Shim and Sarah Huffman were Thorns substitutes.
  • Abby Wambach suffered a knee injury in the Western New York Flash’s 2-1 loss to the Houston Dash. She is expected to recover quickly and is a part of Jill Ellis’ roster for the USWNT’s upcoming friendlies against France.
  • The midweek rest must have done the trick for Lianne Sanderson as she scored a brace against the Washington Spirit over the weekend. She was the sole Boston Breakers scorer, though, and the team lost 3-2 to the Spirit in a match that also included play from Joanna Lohman and Lori Lindsey.
