Late Tuesday Kicks: Hat trick

*Columbus Crew forward Guillermo Barros Schelotto was suspended for one game and fined $250 for his “off the ball actions” against Chivas USA defender Michael Umaa Saturday, the Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee announced today. That’s the equivalent of a straight red.

The officiating crew did not see the 79th minute incident.

*The U.S. Women’s National Team will face Sweden at 4:30 p.m. July 17 in East Hartford, Conn (live on Fox Soccer Channel).

*Soccer America caught up with former Galaxy goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, now starting for Dallas, after the Peninsula High product’s exit from the Kansas City Wizards.

    Did he send up the free kick that Braun drew his red card? I wish I could get that one taken back!

    Ah well, what can you do???? Except laugh at Schelotto’s professionalism as he is quoted on the Crew website:

    I dont know why Columbus Crew accept this rule because [Chivas] kick me all game and nobody from Columbus say something with the ref or with the league, he said. The team needs to answer to me. They need to talk with the league and say No, because every game, every team can show one play in the game and [Chivas] go to MLS crying, complaining.
