FC Kansas City's Tymrak named Rookie of the Year

MOST COMMENTED

[NWSL] FC Kansas City midfielder Erika Tymrak was voted the NWSL Rookie of the Year, beating out Western New York Flash goalkeeper Adrianna Franch in second and Boston Breakers forward Sydney Leroux, who finished third.

The University of Florida product finished with six goals and four assists in 21 appearances for FC Kansas City, which was first until the final day of the regular season.

She was named the NWSL Player of the Month in July after scoring three goals and adding an assist in six games for the Blues, who went 3-0-3.

Tymrak was taken in the second round -- the 11th pick overall -- in the NWSL college draft.

Franch, taken by the Flash in the first round, played all but two minutes in goal, recording a 0.91 goals-against average as the Flash won the regular-season title.

Leroux, who scored 11 goals for the Breakers, who did not make the playoffs, was classified as a rookie because she did not play for a club in 2012, her first season out of UCLA.
