Utah Royals FC forward Brittany Ratcliffe is going to be sidelined for awhile.
Ratcillfe announced via Instagram Tuesday that she has torn her ACL and will miss most, if not all, of the 2019 season.
“There are no words to describe the sadness I feel in my heart,” Radcliffe wrote. “But it is through adversity that we realize what we are truly made of. You can never control the adversities you face, but you can always control the response.”
Radcliffe said in her post that she suffered the same injury eight years ago.
The Royals forward, who joined the team last year after FC Kansas City ceased operations, played 10 games in the 2018 season and scored two goals.
