Kara Lang finds a home

Former Vancouver Whitecap Kara Lang has found a new home. She has joined the Pali Blues Soccer Club, USL-W League. Pali Blues were the winner of the 2008 W-League championship in just its first season of play. The 22-year-old Lang is already the fourth all-time leading scorer in Canadian National Team history and will be looked at to provide some offense for the Blues.

"Kara will provide us with versatility and athleticism that is second to none,” Blues head coach Charlie Naimo remarked. “She also brings Olympic and World Cup experience to the table and at a very young age. Kara will most likely play a variety of roles for us this season."

Kara Lang will make her return to Vancouver to face the Whitecaps on Sunday, June 7, with the return match Tuesday, June 23rd down in California.

What's wrong with returning to the 'Caps?

I don't think there is anything wrong with returning to the 'Caps. She went to UCLA, so she that may have played a factor in deciding where she wanted to play.
