[AWARDS] Six years after her first award, Kelly Parker of W-League finalist Buffalo Flash became the first repeat winner of the MVP award in league history.

Parker topped the 2010 W-League in goals and points and led the Flash to Saturday's W-League title game against Vancouver (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, 10 p.m. ET).

She was also chosen as league MVP in 2004 and was selected to the All-League Team in 2004, 2005 and 2007 with Ottawa.

Rookie of the Year – Rashidah Sherman, New York Magic
There wasn’t much doubt about the recipient of the 2010 W-League Rookie of the Year Award.  Sherman finished second to Parker in goals and points and was also an MVP finalist.

Defender of the Year – Sue Weber, Long Island Rough Riders
Weber anchored the Long Island defense this season and added a goal and two assists in the process.  She also captured the honor in 2008.

Goalkeeper of the Year – Alyssa Whitehead, Charlotte Lady Eagle
In 10 games, Whitehead allowed only four goals while leading Charlotte into the conference playoffs after a second-place finish in the Atlantic Division.  

Coach of the Year – Hubert Busby, Jr. – Vancouver Whitecaps
The Caps won three games in 2009, but Busby has them on the verge of a title.  Included in Vancouver’s impressive season are three wins against the two-time champion Pali Blues and a semifinal upset of the regular-season champion Hudson Valley Quickstrike Lady Blues.
