Thorns FC's Lindsey Horan named NWSL Budweiser Player of the Week

Following her goal and assist performance in Thorns FC 3-0 victory over Racing Louisville FC Sunday, midfielder Lindsey Horan was named the NWSL Budweiser Player of the Week for her performance. 

Beyond the goal and assist, Horan quietly dominated the game with a team-leading 10 shots, four on target, seven chances created and 105 touches. 

And if you really want to dig into not just what Horan brought to the win over Racing–and her Player of the Week laurels–but also her overall key importance on the field for Portland, then have a look at Richard Farley's deep dive into how the U.S. international "was the center of [the game]: the red, hot star around which everything revolved," right here.
