With less than 20 minutes on the pitch in the 2019 NWSL campaign, the season appears to be over for Bay Shore native Jasmyne Spencer.

The Reign FC forward left the match with a leg injury that has been diagnosed as an ACL tear, which likely ends her season. News of the injury was reported by sounderatheart.com.

Spencer was taken off the pitch in the 19th minute in Reign FC’s 1-1 draw on the road against the Houston Dash on Sunday, April 14. She was stretchered off the field after the non-contact injury and was later seen wearing a full leg brace.

The Long Island native took to Twitter to thank family and friends for their support.

Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to me the past couple of days,” she wrote. “I really appreciate you all. I’m surrounded by an incredible support group so I’m in really good spirits, and I have all the faith in the world that @ReignFC will accomplish great things this season!”

As of Friday, the club had not released further specifics on Spencer’s injury.

During her first season in the Pacific Northwest in 2018, she appeared in 23 matches with nine starts and had two goals. She had scored Reign FC’s lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Portland Thorns in an NWSL playoff game.
