Rochester Area Rejoices at Abby Wamback - World Cup!

Hometown hero Abby Wamback of Pittsford (a suburb of Rochester) scores another big goal in the woman's soccer World Cup! Go Abby Go! "It was the third straight game in which the 31-year-old scored and her 12 World Cup goals tie her with Michelle Akers for the most ever by a U.S. player." Abby previously "scored the winning goal in overtime of the 2004 Olympic final." She later "suffered a broken leg that kept her out of the 2008 Olympics." Read more about it here. (local D&C news), and click here for CNN News. The finals are on Sunday 17th, Japan vs USA. I'm not usually interested in sports, but this ought to be good! GO ABBY!
