FC Kansas City revealed that forward/mid Liz Bogus and defender Meghan Lisenby have officially retired. It was long suspected that Bogus would retire after last season after helping the Blues earn their second consecutive National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) Championship.
Bogus played two season for FC Kansas City. With so much talent on the Blues it was hard for Bogus to be a consistent starter (started 8 of 13 appearances in 2014 and 10 of 18 appearances in 2015). What she did excel at was filling whatever need the Blues had, she could fill in at forward or midfield and consistently gave her all.
Liz had two goals in 2014 and scored three times in 2015, significantly contributing to keeping the Blues afloat while the national team players were gone.
Lisenby, was also limited by being behind a talented roster of defenders, only appearing in five matches for a total of 14 minutes as a late sub.
