The Washington Spirit have placed Francisca Ordega on the 45-day disabled list with a chondral defect on her right knee. The Nigerian will have surgery. The release did not specify that Ordega will miss the remainder of the season but comments from Spirit coach/general manager Jim Gabarra did not make it seem promising.

“Franny has had a great first half of the season,” Gabarra said. “She has made great strides and improvements in her game. We all feel as bad as she feels but know she will be back.”

Ordega has 4 goals and 3 assists this season, both tops on the last-place Spirit.
