OFFENSIVE

Shannon McMahon – Oly Town Artesians: Tied at 2-2 at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Shannon McMahon took the opening kick of the quarter, fired a shot from midfield that took a slight deflection off of an unsuspecting Oly-Pen defender and found the back of the net to give the Artesians a lead they would not relinquish. The Concordia University alum then scored two more goals including what proved to be the game winner in Oly Town’s 7-4 debut victory, and earning the first Women’s WISL Offensive Player Of The Week Award.

DEFENSIVE

Kyla Carter – Tacoma Narrows: Tacoma Narrows and goalkeeper Kyla Carter opened up their first Women’s WISL season by holding the Snohomish Skyhawks scoreless until midway through the fourth quarter in their 8-1 victory. The Evergreen State alum and keeper for Washington Premier in the Northwest Premier League, made many 1v1 saves and put her body on the line many times in her first league game and was honored by league coaches and front office members as their first Defensive Player Of The Week.

Other Nominees

Offensive: Justina MacDowell (Tacoma Narrows), Chalise Baysa (Snohomish Skyhawks)
