    I love how a lot of the Abby's XI are former Athletica players getting back together. It's always good to see Hope, Boxx, Chalupny, Eni, and Tina on the field, heck, even Athletica Alums Loyden and Kerr are on that side. It's still a shame on how the team folded, but I wish the best of luck to the players.
