[W-LEAGUE] The Pali Blues (7-0-0) and D.C. United Women (6-0-0) are the only teams still unbeaten in the W-League. The Charlotte Lady Eagles (7-0-2) suffered their first blemishes when they had to settle for ties with the Central SC Cobras (2-2) and defending champion Atlanta Silverbacks (2-2). The Silverbacks (6-0-1) and Laval Comets (4-0-2) also remained unbeaten.

-- Pali Blues forward Lynn Williams was named the W-League Player of the Week as the offensive leader for the Blues in a trio of wins to stay perfect atop the Western Conference standings. She had two goals and an assist in an 8-0 win over the Victoria Highlanders, followed by both goals in a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids Women. She rounded out the week with an assist in a 3-0 win over Colorado Rush.

-- Mikaela Howell scored a hat trick in just 63 minutes to lead D.C. United past the Northern Virginia Majestics, 5-1. The 23-year-old striker leads the club with seven goals and five assists. No other player has scored more than two goals for United.

-- The Silverbacks rallied from a two-goal halftime deficit to earn a draw with the Lady Eagles. Gloria Douglas and Amanda Naeher put Charlotte ahead with goals in the first 17 minutes, but Atlanta hit back six minutes after halftime when Kristin Burton scored her sixth goal of the season, then Tiffini Turpin tied the game in the 61st minute with her fourth goal of the season.

-- Laval beat the Rochester Ravens, 2-0, and Hamilton FC Rage, 2-1, to lead the Central Division. The Comets got goals from Nkemjika Ezurike and Danielle Wu in the win over Rochester and goals from Catherine Charron-Delage and Vanessa Legault-Cordisco against Hamilton.
