The W-League announced its Team of the Week for Week 8 of the 2013 season, honoring the top players in league matches over the previous weekend. For the third time this season, Spirit Reserves midfielder/forward Amber Stobbs earned recognition for her role in Washington’s 2-1 victory over the New York Magic.
The Washington Spirit received a late equalizer on a penalty kick by Diana Matheson to snap a five-game skid and earn a draw against FC Kansas City on Wednesday at the Maryland SoccerPlex in front of a crowd of 2,467.
The Washington Spirit (1-7-3) will host third place FC Kansas City (7-4-2) Wednesday night at Maureen Hendricks Field in a one-game home stint.
With the 1-0 loss to the Long Island Rough Riders the previous evening weighing heavily on their minds, the Washington Spirit Reserves snapped their recent scoring drought to down the New York Magic 2-1 Sunday night. A pair of second half goals by Spirit Reserves forwards Ashley Herndon and Amber Stobbs proved just enough to get by New York and exorcise the Washington scoring demons of late.
