BREMERTON, WA—The Northwest Premier League today announces that the head coaches and general managers of the nine member clubs have voted on the #OurTime NWPL Players of the Week for July 1, 2018. The honorees are Lauryn Peters of Yakima United (Offense) and Jessica Hankins of Washington Timbers (Defense.)
In the biggest weekend of the short 2-year history of the Yakima United Women of the NWPL it was Lauryn Peters who scored twice in a 2-1 win over Washington Premier FC om Saturday June 30. The 3 points followed by a wild 3-3 draw the next day were enough to get the Hoppers into the playoffs.
Jessica Hankins (“Sunny”) saved everything that came her way as the Washington Timbers claimed 3 points and a 2-0 shut out win over the Twin City Union on Saturday in Centralia. The Timbers clinched second place in the table and a first round bye in the playoffs. It is Hankins’ second honor of the season.
