[NWSL] FC Kansas City goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart was voted the NWSL Goalkeeper of the Year, beating out Western New York rookie Adrianna Franch and Portland's Karina LeBlanc, who finished tied for second in the voting.

Barnhart, 31, led the NWSL with 10 shutouts and ranked third in goals-against average (0.95) and fifth in saves (67).

The U.S. national team keeper recorded five shutouts in seven games June 30-July 28, part of a league-best 10-game unbeaten streak during which the Blues took the lead in the NWSL.

Franch, who was also second in the Rookie of the Year balloting, led the league with a 0.91 GAA, playing all but two minutes for the Flash.

LeBlanc ranked fourth among all keepers who played at least half of the season with a 1.09 GAA.

Franch and LeBlanc finished tied for third in the league in shutouts with seven.
