You could look at tomorrow's WPS semifinal between the Independence and magicJack as a World Cup reunion game. There will be nine members of the U.S. team that finished second to Japan at the World Cup in Germany last month on the field at PPL Park. Goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart, Amy Rodriguez and Lori Lindsey for the Indy, and Shannon Boxx, Jill Loyden, Megan Rapinoe, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn and player/coach Abby Wambach for the magic. And it's that last player who could make the difference.

Jill Loyden knew her hand was broken as soon as it happened. The 27-year-old Vineland native and Villanova graduate was training with the U.S. women's national soccer team in Portugal on March 7 when she felt a crack. Immediately she could feel that it wasn't just a temporary discomfort - a jammed finger or sprained tendon. "Frustrating, to say the least," Loyden said of her injury. "That's an understatement. " The injury was just one more roadblock for the goalkeeper who has overcome personal tragedy, competed for a variety of teams across the country and plays a position that, within U.S. soccer, has become synonymous with the name Hope.

It turns out that was as close as the franchise will ever come. WPS announced Friday that it has fully shut down, dashing any lingering hopes held by fans of a rebound for the league after the London Olympics. The news came by way of an e-mail news release and a post on the league's Facebook page.

Women's Professional Soccer announced Monday that it has suspended the 2012 season due to "legal issues" and an "ongoing dispute" with a former owner. WPS was formed in 2009 following the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. The Independence, owned by David Halstead and coached by Paul Riley, last season lost in the WPS championship game for the second straight year. "This is what responsible business enterprises do, and it's what the WPS and Philadelphia Independence are going to do," Halstead said in a statement.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When Women's Professional Soccer was granted sanctioning for 2012 by the U.S. Soccer Federation last month, it seemed like the league had escaped the worst storm of another tumultuous offseason. But as WPS convenes for its annual draft Friday, the league might not be on safe ground. On Monday, a Florida judge ruled that controversial former magicJack SC owner Dan Borislow was denied due process when the league terminated his Boca Raton, Fla.-based franchise after the 2011 season.
