WPSL Team of the Week

F Maggie Tomecka (SOCCERPLUS CT) - WPSL CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Two goals and an assist - and a degree to boot as she graduated from medical school that same day - gives Tomecka the nod for Co-POTW.
F Mary Frances Monroe (NEW ENGLAND MUTINY) - WPSL CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Diminutive in stature but large in skill, the former Boston Breaker secured the win for the undefeated Mutiny with a textbook goal - dribbling through various defenders - against the Boston Aztecs. The four-time NSCAA All-American & Mutiny captain has been huge for New England this season, leading the league in goals scored (6), so her collective effort gives her the right to Co-POTW honors.
F Jasmyne Spencer (LONG ISLAND FURY)
Scored two goals and an assist in a pair of wins against the CDSA Future & reigning East-Mid Atlantic Division champion Atlantic City Diablos, respectively.
MF Ana Coria (LOS ANGELES RAMPAGE)
Not to be out-done by the East teams, the lone remaining undefeated side in the Pacific Conference needed the goal and assist performance from Coria over the weekend to help maintain that status. Coria's creative style and unpredictability were too much for their Pacific-North adversaries, as she was constantly creating havoc in the opposing defenses' with her dribbling ability and penetrating passes.
MF Carley Phillips (SOUTH SELECT)
According to head coach David DeVerteuil, Phillips was the "best midfielder for us by far" in victories vs. Charmaine Hooper and her Forth Worth F.C. side & Vitesse Dallas.
MF Tiffany Weimer (SOCCERPLUS CT)
This is the second appearance for the U.S. National Team Pool member on the WPSL TOTW, and Weimer is tied with Monroe for first in the WPSL in goals scored while leading the league in assists (5) & scoring (15 points).
MF Lara Kaminski (MILLBURN MAGIC)
The Montclair State University midfielder capped a fine performance with an outstanding 25-yard strike in the 3-2 win for the Millburn Magic over the CDSA Future in East-Mid Atlantic action.
D Carmen Reyes (PUERTO RICO CAPITALS)
One of the top headlines coming from the Sunshine Conference is the defensive prowess of the Puerto Rico Capitals, and their right back in Reyes played a technically & tactically clean game for 90 minutes as her side shut-out their third consecutive opponent - this time, against second place Palm Beach United. Palm Beach was held to five shots on goal and the University of Montana defender was a physical presence, closing down the opposing players on the right side of the field all night long.
D Courtney Baines (BREVARD COUNTY COCOA EXPOS)
The former Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year for Central Florida scored a goal and an assist, and snuffed out every F.C. Thomasville attack in their win over the Georgia-based side.
D Lindsey Smart (UTAH SPIDERS)
The All-WAC First Team & 2006 WAC Freshman of the Year honoree was one of the hardest working players on the field in the Spider's two wins over Arizona Rush & Northern Arizona last weekend. Smart was instrumental in holding the other team from scoring while also creating offensive scoring chances in what is now a wide-open Big Sky-North Division race.
GK Lauren Luckey (NEW ENGLAND MUTINY)
With the loss of 2007 East Goalkeeper of the Year Stephanie Labbe to Canadian National Team duty, Luckey has had to be more than that this season for the Mutiny and has registered three shutouts. The UMass-Amherst keeper made a game-saving stop in their shutout win at Boston to help New England stay undefeated going into their match-up against SoccerPlus CT.
