Seattle Reign FC midfielder Kim Little was voted the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Player of the Week by the NWSL Media Association for Week 3 of the 2016 NWSL season.
Little, 25, scored the lone goal of the game to help Reign FC earn a 1-0 victory Sunday over FC Kansas City at Memorial Stadium in Seattle. It was the team’s first home win of the season.
The Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, Scotland native scored the game-winning goal in the 56th minute when she settled the ball from a Manon Melis pass inside the Kansas City penalty box and redirected the ball around a defender to score far post. (Goal – Watch highlights)
