WPS Matchday: Breakers at Freedom

Greetings from Maryland SoccerPlex, where WPS Season Two is set to kickoff at 7 PM with the Freedom hosting the Boston Breakers.

It's a beautiful day for soccer -- I got my game in earlier today -- and the perfect setting to open the league. The crowd is filing in and it looks like it'll be a nice atmosphere.

As we all know, WPS lost its highest-profile team this offseason in the Los Angeles Sol, but as I wrote today, that hasn't kept the league from promoting its growth in other areas and from promoting its long-term viability.

The Freedom was finding its form at the end of last year, especially forward Abby Wambach, and several players who had taken time to fully recover from long-term injuries this year have the luxury of being fully fit at the start of the year (Wambach, Cat Whitehill, Sarah Huffman and Erin McLeod).

We'll see how that impacts a Freedom team that unlike some teams in the league has maintained its core and identity from Season One to Season Two.

Starting Lineup: McLeod; Moros, Whitehill, Marshall, Bompastor; Sauerbrunn, Long, Sawa, Huffman; Mykjåland, Wambach.

As usual this is your place for in-game and postgame commentary...I'm afraid I didn't leave you enough time for the pregame chatter.

At least it's better looking soccer than DCU.

I just got back from watching the DCU game at Summers, and I'm trying to catch up. Paul's Twitter feed stopped with Boston up 2-nil at the half. What happened after that? Also, the most noteworthy thing about the starting lineup was that De Vanna wasn't in it. Also, is Krieger back in Germany?
