WPS: Larkin debuts in opener, Bogus signs with Sol

The dawn of Womens Professional Soccer burned bright on Sunday afternoon as the Los Angeles Sol took on the Washington Freedom at the Home Depot Center. The state of Utah was represented in the match by Draper-native Katie Larkin, who patrolled the left flank for the duration of the second half.

Larkin spent most of her time hugging the sideline, providing an outside option for her teammates to spread the field. She recorded no shots in the Sol's 2-0 victory.

In the same week that Larkin took the field in WPS action for the Sol the Los Angeles squad signed Provo-native Liz Bogus to a developmental contract. Bogus spent the WPS preseason training with the FC Gold Pride but was let go when rosters were finalized. The Sol wasted little time as Bogus was reported to be training with the team within days of being cut from the Gold Pride.

Since graduating Brighton High School, Bogus played three years at Arizona State University before moving on to play for the Pali Blues of the USL W-League in 2008. Incidentally, the Blues took the W-League title that season. Bogus played in nine matches while scoring four goals and setting up another.

The Sol will travel across the country for their second match as they face Sky Blue FC at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ. The match takes place Sunday, April 5. Kickoff is slated for 4pm ET.
