[NWSL: Week 12] The unbeaten Seattle Reign FC has cleared star Hope Solo to play in Saturday’s home game against Sky Blue FC following her arrest a week ago on charges of fourth-degree domestic violence assault in an incident involving her sister and nephew.

Solo pleaded not guilty in a court appearance on Monday and was released on her own recognizance. The Reign said in a post on its Facebook page that an investigation, "which has included multiple conversations with Hope, made it clear that there are differing perspectives on the events that led up to Hope’s arrest. As such, we feel it is fair and prudent to await the outcome of the legal process before making a final judgment about the incident.”

Hope, who was ordered to avoid drinking alcohol and contact with her sister and nephew, made an apology in a post of her own on her Facebook page: “I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct. I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed.”

Solo's next hearing is scheduled for Aug. 11.

WEDNESDAY.  Goals by Katy Freels and Lindsi Cutshall gave Sky Blue FC its third win of the season in 15 games, a 2-1 win over the Portland Thorns FC in front of 10,477 fans at Providence Park. Sky Blue FC goalkeeper Brittany Cameron to make five saves to hold off the Thorns, whose only goal was scored by Canadian Christine Sinclair.

    Damned shame that there's no TV coverage for these ladies. Shame on the TV channels and the advertisers. We should all boycott the ones to blame.
