UWS Week 5 Team Of The Week: Santa Clarita, Detroit, GRFC, Long Island & NJCFC honored with multiple picks
Week IV of the Summer 2017 season in United Women’s Soccer (UWS) saw the pace of play turned up a notch and some dramatic results.
Therefore, there were a lot of top individual performances to sift through which made the selection process for this edition of the UWS Team of the Week the toughest of the season. Some new names are on this week’s honor roll but we’re starting to see some players rise above the rest. This will be the second time being selected to the UWS TOTW for Marti Corby (GRFC Women), Morgan Santoro (Long Island), Madison Schupbach (Detroit), Hailey Skolmoski (RSL Women) and Annie Steinlage (GRFC Women).
