Hamm and Wambach to chat live on WashingtonPost.com

August 4, 2003 - Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) - magicJack News Release


The league's top two point-scorers - Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach - will be sitting down for a chat at Washingtonpost.com, Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 11:30 a.m. ET. The chat will last approximately an hour. Submit your questions and comments before or during Tuesday's discussion by going to this link.

In the midst of her most productive professional season, Hamm leads the league in points scored (33). She has tallied 11 goals, good for fourth in the league, and 11 assists, first in the league. Hamm is just the third WUSA player to reach double digits in goals and assists in the same season. In Saturday's playoff-clinching 5-0 victory over the San Jose CyberRays, Hamm notched the first hat trick of her WUSA career. Following the WUSA season, Hamm will join the U.S. Women's National Team as it attempts to defend its World Cup title on home soil.

Wambach, the 2002 WUSA Rookie of the Year, is having another solid campaign with 32 points, second in the league. After scoring twice in Washington's 5-0 victory over the CyberRays, Wambach is tied for the league goal-scoring lead with 13. She also has six assists on the season. Earlier this year, Wambach scored a hat trick against the Charge. In her next game, she recorded three assists against the Power. A hopeful for the 2003 U.S. Women's World Cup roster, Wambach has made a strong case for selection with a four-game goalscoring streak and has scored eight goals in her last six games for the Freedom.

Hoping for a top-2 finish to get a chance to host a home 2003 WUSA semifinal match, the Freedom travel to Philadelphia on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. ET before concluding the regular season in San Diego on Saturday (PAX TV 4:00 p.m. ET).
