Western New York Flash forward Lynn Williams was voted the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Player of the Week by the NWSL Media Association for Week 7 of the 2016 NWSL season. 

Williams, 23, had two goals to help the Flash earn a 4-0 victory over the Boston Breakers at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, N.Y. It was the team’s second consecutive win at home this season.
 
The Fresno, Calif. native registered her first goal of the game in the 64th minute when she tapped in a pass received inside the box from Michaela Hahn. (Watch – Goal)
 
The Pepperdine University product scored just moments later in the 65th minute off a through ball outside the box from Meredith Speck. Williams maneuvered the ball around two Boston defenders and shot it past the left hand of Boston goalkeeper Jami Kranich. (Watch – Goal)
 
Williams played all 90 minutes of the game and finished with three shots on goal.
 
It is the first time Williams has been honored as the NWSL Player of the Week. It is the ninth time a member of Western New York Flash has won the award.
Western New York Flash will return to action Saturday, June 11 at 7 p.m. ET against Orlando Pride at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, N.Y.
 
The NWSL Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by the NWSL Media Association, a collection of press that cover the league on a consistent basis. For more information on the NWSL Media Association, follow them on Twitter
