Can't really blame Jill Ellis for balking at a left flank of Crystal Dunn and Megan Rapinoe against England's all-world Nikita Parris and Lucy Bronze. That's just good sense, when you have a winger in Christen Press who is a defensive workhorse and still offers attacking spark…

The sheriff’s office said that authorities began investigating Parris after a student reported her alleged crimes to school officials.
That student was not the victim. The victim is a 16-year-old male student. Since that report was made, in March 2019, Parris has not been allowed to teach. Parris is a graduate of New Smyrna Beach High School. The suspect was part of the class of 2009.
Parris has been booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on a $25,000 bond. Online records show that Parris has posted bail and has been released. Parris’ offence is listed as being Unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
The sheriff’s office said in the press release that their investigation had included interviews and search warrants for digital evidence. Authorities say that detectives have established probable cause that Parris had sexual encounters with the teen away from the school’s campus.
