Caprice Dydasco finishes 2018 NWSL season among league leaders in 5 major categories

Boyds, Md. (Sept. 15, 2018) – Washington Spirit defender Caprice Dydasco finished the 2018 NWSL season as one of 12 players around the league to appear in all 24 of their team’s regular season matches, while also ranking among the league leaders in four other major categories.

In addition to ranking tied for first among the league leaders in games played for 2018, Dydasco pushed her current “iron woman” streak of consecutive games played to 40.

After beginning the 2017 NWSL season on the disabled list while recovering from a torn ACL, the 25-year-old UCLA alum returned to the field in June 2017, and played in all of the Spirit’s final 16 games. Dydasco was the only Spirit player to appear in all 24 regular season matches in 2018, playing a major role on the defensive side and in starting attacking runs from the back.

Dydasco finished second in the NWSL, behind only Portland’s Lindsey Horan, with 1,714 total touches on the ball in 2018. She also ranked seventh in the league with 1,048 total passes, while finishing ninth with 42 tackles won, and fourth in interceptions with 60.
