[WPS] Boston Breakers forward Christine Latham was handed the heaviest suspension in Women's Professional Soccer's short history when the Canadian was suspended two games and fined $250 for an elbow thrown at Alex Singer in the 51st minute of Sunday's game against the Washington Freedom on national television. Freedom midfielder Joanna Lohman was suspended one game for an elbow thrown in the 90th minute of the same game.

Meanwhile, the WPS Disciplinary Committee fined Breakers coach Tony DiCicco $750 for comments after the game that had "an effect prejudicial and detrimental to WPS including public criticism of game officials and WPS officiating generally." He is also required to do four hours of community service in the sport of soccer.

"It's just not good enough," the dean of WPS coaches told the Boston Globe. "They're over their head. They have to learn, just like the players have to learn to play at this level and coaches have to learn coaching at this level, and the refereeing has to get better at this level."
