Tymrak, 21, had a goal and an assist for FC Kansas City in a 2-0 victory over Seattle Reign FC on Saturday at Verizon Wireless Field in Overland Park, Kan.
The Bradenton, Fla. native intercepted a pass from Reign midfielder Megan Rapinoe and dribbled 25 yards into space before sending a cross-field pass to set up Lauren Holiday for the U.S. international's 10th goal of the season to give the Blues a 1-0 advantage in the 39th minute.
The University of Florida product then secured all three points for the Blues in the 86th minute when she collected a pass from Jen Buczkowski near the left sideline and cut inside to beat three defenders before unleashing a low, curling shot past Seattle goalkeeper Hope Solo from the edge of the box.
It was Tymrak's sixth goal of the season - and fourth in the last six games - to move her into a four-way tie for fourth in the league.
