MOST COMMENTED

[AWARDS] FC Kansas City's Becky Sauerbrunn repeated as the NWSL Defender of the Year after again leading the club to second place. She finished ahead of Washington Spirit defender Ali Krieger and Chicago Red Stars defender Julie Johnston, the Rookie of the Year, tied for second in the voting.

NWSL Awards:
Rookie of the Year: Julie Johnston
Goalkeeper of the Year: Alyssa Naeher

Sauerbrunn, 29, played in 22 games -- including every minute of FC Kansas City's league-best eight shutouts. It allowed just one goal in its NWSL record-tying seven-game win streak May 25-July 6.

The University of Virginia product also scored the first goal of her NWSL career this season in a 2-1 victory July 30 over the Washington Spirit.

FC Kansas City plays Seattle Reign FC in the 2014 NWSL championship Sunday 3 p.m. ET. at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila, Wash., where the Reign played in 2013. Memorial Stadium, its 2014 home, was previously booked by Bumbershoot, a Labor Day music and arts festival.

    Well deserved, and Becky Sauerbrunn scored a screamer on July 30th. Correction: Washington Spirit won that game 2-1, beating KC, and the Spirit took the season series over KC 2-1 too.
