SAN FRANCISCO — Women's Professional Soccer has terminated its South Florida franchise after clashing with the owner all season.
The 3-year-old league announced Thursday that its Board of Governors voted two days earlier to terminate magicJack, one of its six teams this past season. MagicJack (10-8-2) featured Richland native Hope Solo, Abby Wambach and several members of the U.S. team that played in the 2011 Women's World Cup.
In May, the club was docked a point in the standings and a draft pick for not meeting league standards.
In August, after owner Dan Borislow filed suit against the WPS in Florida court, the league released a statement accusing him of violations ranging from "unprofessional and disparaging treatment of his players to failure to pay his bills."
The WPS claimed that "Mr. Borislow's actions have been calculated to tarnish the reputation of the league and damage the league’s business relationships."
