May 4, 2017 - National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) - Seattle Reign FC

News Release

SEATTLE - The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) today announced

Seattle Reign FC midfielder Jessica Fishlock has been named to the NWSL Team of

the Month. This is the first season the Team of the Month honor has been

introduced.

Reign FC went 1-1-1 during the month of April, with Fishlock

starting and playing the full 90 minutes in all three matches. The co-captain

notched one goal and one assist, with both coming in the 5-1 victory over the

Houston Dash.

Fishlock's goal came in the 18th minute of the

match, after a clearance deflected off Beverly Yanez. Christine Nairn was able

to control the ball, and then laid the ball off for Fishlock who shot through

traffic into the far corner of the net for her first goal of 2017.

Fishlock helped Reign FC double the score less than ten

minutes later, providing the assist on Megan Rapinoe's impressive Goal of the

Week nominee.

The NWSL Team of the Month is selected by the NWSL Media

Association, a collection of media members that cover the league on a
