WPS suspends Wambach for reckless tackle

After further review of the match between the Washington Freedom and St. Louis Athletic on May 3, the WPS announced the suspension of Washington's Abby Wambach and St. Louis' Kia McNeill. Both Wambach and McNeill will incur a one-match ban.

Wambach was deemed guilty of a reckless challenge in the 80th minute when she slid into St. Louis midfielder Daniela. Daniela suffered a serious knee injury on the play and could miss the rest of the season.

McNeill received her suspension due to what the league termed "persistent egregious conduct toward an opposing player."
