Two of the four nominees for National Women’s Soccer League goal of the week for Week 1 have a connection to the Long Island area.
The ridiculous left foot curler by former St. John’s University star Rachel Daly in Houston Dash’s 2-0 win over Chicago Red Stars is one of the nominated goals.
Also up for consideration is Christine Sinclair’s goal for Portland in the Thorns 2-0 win over Orlando Pride. Sinclair’s finish was made possible by Long Islander Allie Long, whose well-placed pass found her Portland teammate.
