Western New York Flash midfielder Carli Lloyd is The Equalizer’s Week 17 National Women’s Soccer League Player of the Week, as voted on by the editors of the site.
It is the second time she won our award, after scoring a hat trick in Week 12.
Lloyd scored a goal in each of the Flash’s two games last week, including a late equalizer that all but sank the playoff hopes of the Boston Breakers. Lloyd’s 86th minute equalizer gave the Flash a 2-2 draw in Boston — a familiar narrative for the two teams.
Two months earlier, the Flash stole a point on a last-second header by Jodi-Ann Robinson to tie the Breakers 2-2 at Dilboy Stadium. On Saturday, they did it again, this time through Lloyd, to erase a 2-0 deficit late.
She also scored in a 3-0 home rout of the Washington Spirit on Wednesday.
Lloyd now has seven goals in 12 games this season. Two of them are game-winners.
