Bompastor named WPS Player of the Week

Posted by iamhannah on May 6, 2009

BOYDS, Md. – For the second time in as many weeks, a Washington Freedom player has been named the WPS Player of the Week. With two goals, including the game-tying goal in the 90th minute, in a 3-3 draw with Saint Louis, midfielder Sonia Bompastor was awarded the honor by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR).

Bompastor’s two goals on Sunday were her first as a member of the Freedom, although she did record the assist on the team’s first WPS goal back on April 11 against Chicago. Both of Bompastor’s goals were scored with her head.

This is the second straight week a two-goal scorer has been named Player of the Week. Abby Wambach won the award the previous week for her two goal, one assist performance against FC Gold Pride, which included the game-winner in stoppage time.
