Congratulations to FC Kansas City’s Lauren Cheney on being voted NWSL Fans’ Choice MVP for her week 12 performances against Sky Blue FC and the Portland Thorns FC.
Cheney helped her FC Kansas City Blues earn four points over the course of four days against the top two teams in the league.
On Wednesday night against top-ranked Sky Blue FC, Cheney scored in the 74th minute which looked to seal the win for the Blues, however Sky Blue FC scored twice in the last 15 minutes to end the match in a 2-2 draw.
Then on Sunday afternoon in Kansas City, the Blues avenged their 4-3 loss to the Thorns FC from earlier in June with a dominant 2-0 victory lead by Cheney’s league leading eighth goal of the season, a strike from almost 30 yards out just 10 minutes into the match.
Cheney won both the Twitter and Facebook poll by a small margin over USWNT teammate and WNY Flash player Carli Lloyd. This is Cheney’s second time being voted MVP (she was voted again in week 3 of the NWSL season).
