The Women's Premier Soccer League will return to Wisconsin in 2018.

Two state teams will start play in the U.S. Adult Soccer Association Region II Amateur Cup next month.

The Milwaukee Wave hope soccer will be played late into the night Tuesday at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.

The second annual SheBelieves Cup earlier this month was one to forget for the U.S. women's national team. But one bright spot for the U.S. was the play of midfielder Rose Lavelle (UW), who impressed in her first appearances for the full national team.

Colorado Rapids center back Axel Sjöberg (Marquette) is expected to be out at least six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery on his left hamstring Tuesday.

After watching a fourth-quarter lead disappear in a Game 1 road loss to the Kansas City Comets in the Major Arena Soccer League Central Division finals Thursday, the Milwaukee Wave pulled out two hard-fought victories on their home turf Sunday to advance to the Eastern Conference finals.
