Houston’s Bock out for season with torn ACL

Brittany Bock is reportedly out for the season with a torn left ACL.

Houston Dash midfielder Brittany Bock’s seasonis over after playing only 23 minutes. An MRI on Monday confirmed that Bock has a torn anterior left cruciate ligament (ACL), as first reported by the Houston Chronicle.

Bock has a long and unfortunate history of injuries; she played in only seven games for Sky Blue FC last year due to a broken wrist, among other things.

In 2011, the Western New York Flash won the WPS title with, among several stars, a midfield anchored by Bock and Becky Edwards. Dash coach Randy Waldrum hoped to replicate that success in 2014 with his expansion team, but that won’t happen this year.

Bock was Houston’s No. 1 pick in January’s expansion draft. She played for Waldrum at Notre Dame from 2005-08.

Bock posted the following message on her Instagram account on Tuesday:

God Cannot Disappoint You <3… “Not only so, but we also REJOICE in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us (Romans 5:3-5)” #suffering #perseverance #character #hope #rejoice
