Bethany Balcer is the NWSL Player of the Week.

Her performance against the Houston Dash on August 7, in which she scored a brace in OL Reign’s 5-1 victory, earned her the accolade.

Balcer has been a force all season for Reign, having played in all 13 matches and starting in six. Currently, she is tied with Ashley Hatch for second in the league’s Golden Boot race with six goals.

It marks the third week in a row that an OL Reign player has earned Player of the Week Honors. Eugenie Le Sommer took the honor last week following a brace against Racing Louisville, while Tziarra King won it the week prior.
