Richard Henderson (Bellingham United)Richard Henderson capped off his fantastic 2021-2022 season with a hat trick holding off teammate Kevin Flavin for the league’s Golden Boot Award in a 12-2 win over the Portland Blacktails. Henderson added two assists in the win that moved the Hammers to 7-2-1 this season and a solid #2 heading into the playoffs. This was Henderson’s second Golden Boot after winning the award with 17 goals during the 2018-2019 season and United’s on-field head coach and WISL veteran has 96 career regular season goals.


Christopher Kalla (Portland Blacktails)It was not the prettiest game for the Portland Blacktails dropping a 12-2 decision to Bellingham United, but Christoper Kalla impressed for the shorthanded Blacktails. The defender stayed positive and played his heart out for nearly 50 minutes of on-field play and got a deserved goal late in the game. In his first WISL season, the former PDX FC, Lane United and European professional has scored five goals for the #4 seeded Blacktails.
