Boston Breakers goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher is The Equalizer’s National Women’s Soccer League Player of the Week, as voted on by the editors of the site.
Naeher helped the Breakers (5-5-4, 19 pts.) secure four points last week on a critical two-game road trip that placed them firmly back in the playoff hunt.
Naeher made seven saves in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Portland Thorns FC. Breakers forward Sydney Leroux scored twice to help lift Boston to the win over the NWSL’s second place team just a week after beating league-leaders Sky Blue FC.
On Wednesday against Seattle Reign FC, Naeher made five saves in a 1-1 draw. Between the two games, Naeher faces 37 shots (on and off goal).
Leroux, also a strong candidate for the Player of the Week, scored all three goals on the road trip.
