Spirit’s Crystal Dunn Named NWSL Player of the Week

Washington Spirit forward Crystal Dunn was voted the National Women’s Soccer League Player of the Week by the media for Week 11 of the 2015 season, the first player in the league to earn the title three times in one season.

Dunn, 22, scored the only goal for the Spirit in the second half to earn a 1-0 win at home over the Houston Dash on June 27 at Maureen Hendricks Field Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds. Dunn is currently leading with the most goals of any player this season with seven goals in ten games, according to a news release from the Spirit.

Dunn is the third Spirit player to be honored as the NWSL Player of the Week. She is the first NWSL player to receive the award three times this season, when she was honored with the award in Weeks 3 and 8.

The Washington Spirit will return to action on July 3 at 8 p.m. against FC Kansas City at Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, Mo.

The NWSL Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a selection of journalists that cover the league on a consistent basis.
