WNY FLASH MIDFIELDER CARLI LLOYD VOTED NWSL PLAYER OF THE WEEK

07/02/2013 10:42 AM -

Western New York Flash midfielder Carli Lloyd was voted the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Player of the Week by the media for Week 12 of the 2013 NWSL season.

Lloyd, 30, netted the second hat trick in the history of the NWSL as Western New York extended their unbeaten run to nine games with a 4-0 victory over the Washington Spirit on June 28.

Flash defender Alex Sahlen assisted on the Delran Township, N.J. native’s first goal in the 3rd minute before forward Abby Wambach set up goals by Lloyd in the 22nd and 56th minutes.

The U.S. international played all 90 minutes against the Spirit, had six shots (five on goal), committed three fouls and suffered two fouls.

Lloyd is the second Western New York player to be voted the NWSL Player of the Week after Wambach claimed the accolade for performances in Week 5 and Week 9.

Boston Breakers forward Sydney Leroux scored the first hat trick in league history May 4 at home against the Chicago Red Stars.

The Western New York Flash will return to action Thursday, July 4th at 2 p.m. ET against the Chicago Red Stars at Benedictine University Sports Complex in Lisle, Ill.

The Flash’s next home game will be July 21st at 1:30 p.m. against Sky Blue FC.  That game will be aired live on Fox Soccer and will be the team’s Youth Soccer Celebration.  Tickets to that game, and all Flash home games, can be purchased by calling the Sahlen’s Stadium box office at (585) 454-KICK or online at wnyflash.com

The NWSL Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a selection of journalists that cover the league on a consistent basis.
