Freedom acquires Bock, Ikidi in dispersal draft

February 06, 2010|By Sports Digest

Washington Freedom on Friday selected former Los Angeles Sol players Brittany Bock,a defender-forward, and Faith Ikidi, a forward-defender, in the Women's Professional Soccer dispersal draft. The Sol discontinued operations Jan. 28. Washington picked Bock, one of last year's top rookies, seventh overall. "We're very happy with [Bock]. She's a versatile player," Freedom coach Jim Gabarra said. "She had a very good season last year in L.A. She played up front, she played in the back, and had such a good season that she played her way into the national team." Bock has played, either on national teams or in national camps, with Freedom players Allie Long, Cat Whitehill and Abby Wambach.
