The Western New York Flash announced on Monday that goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo will miss 2-4 weeks with a Grade 1 right acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation. The AC joint is at the top of the shoulder. D’Angelo suffered the injury early in last Thursday’s scoreless draw in Kansas City when she collided with Liz Bogus. Bogus was bloodied by the collision but returned to the match.
Despite the 2-4 week time line, the Flash have already circled June 6 against the Chicago Red Stars as a potential return date for D’Angelo.
The Canadian D’Angelo was selected 21st overall (3rd round) by the Flash earlier this year after playing collegiately at South Carolina. She was the second keeper selected after Katelyn Rowland (2nd/17th), who made her NWSL debut opposite D’Angelo last Thursday. The match ended in a shutout after Chantel Jones replaced D’Angelo after a quarter hour.
D’Angelo had won every start for the Flash before the injury. She has a 1-3-0 record with a 1.92 goals against average.
The Flash will likely call in an amateur to back up Jones.
