SEATTLE (August 21, 2014) – Seattle Reign FC midfielder Kim Little was officially recognized Thursday as the winner of 2014 NWSL Golden Boot, awarded to the player with the most goals during the regular season.

Little, 24, led the league in scoring this season with 16 goals in 23 games while also recording seven assists, which was tied for second in the NWSL – one behind teammate Jess Fishlock.

The Scotland international broke the NWSL single-season scoring record – previously held by FC Kansas City midfielder Lauren Holiday – with the first of two goals in a 4-1 win July 30 against the Houston Dash in Seattle’s 20th game of the year.

The Aberdeen, Scotland native had a goal in six consecutive games from May 10through June 7 and scored against all eight other teams in the NWSL this season, with her five goals against the Dash the most against any single opponent.

Little was voted the Army National Guard Player of the Month three times this season, becoming the first player to earn the award on multiple occasions. See below for a complete log of Little’s goals in the 2014 NWSL season:
