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."
Never miss a local story.
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."
