    Best of luck on a positive recovery for Kara! Our prayers are with her family.

  • The Sweeper

    All the best for a speedy recover. I must admit that this is one of my hot buttons regarding officials allowing aggressive play against keepers. Whether that was the case or not, officials should always err toward protecting keepers that play fair and clean.

    Again, all the best for Ms. Leffle.

    See you at the pitch!
