The regular seasons in the PDL and the WPSL are quickly coming to a close, but we’ve got another chance this week to recognize two players who stood out in their matches.

In the PDL the goalWA.net Player of the Week is Brad Jacobson of the North Sound SeaWolves (UW transfer for 2013). Brad’s goal in the second half lifted the SeaWolves to their first-ever win over the Sounders U23′s. Jacobson was wearing the captain’s armband when he led North Sound to the victory.

In the WPSL the goalWA.net Player of the Week is AC Seattle goalkeeper Ilaria Leoni. Ilaria (bio) made several crucial saves on Friday as her team beat Emerald City FC to win the Evergreen Cup and qualify for the playoffs. Leoni uses her quickness, foot skills and positioning to keep opponents frustrated.

AC Seattle won three of four matches in six days with Leoni in goal for all 360 minutes.

INWsoccerNews.com went with three scorers in their weekly honors.

  1. David, taking it up another notch, how about 2013 MVPs for both WPSL and PDL this year? For each league, maybe do online voting for top 3 vote getters then staff members choose from that group? That should be pretty awesome!
