National Women's Soccer League: • Amber Brooks suspended for giving finger.
Brooks, whose two goals sparked the Washington Spirit in its 4-3 win over San Diego to snap its 16-game winless streak, was issued a one-game suspension and a fine for "major game misconduct:" giving the finger to an assistant referee for awarding the Wave a corner kick that led to an Alex Morgan goal. Brooks will miss two games, having to serve another suspension for yellow card accumulation. MLS Next:
