Congratulations to Sky Blue FC’s Lisa De Vanna on being voted NWSL Fans’ Choice MVP for Week 8 for her performance against the Boston Breakers this past week.
De Vanna helped get Sky Blue FC on the board early by making some nifty moves inside the box that caused her defender hit the turf and then she laid the ball off to a streaking Danesha Adams who slid the ball past Breakers goalkeeper Ashley Phillips to give her club a 1-0 lead just seven minutes into the match.
But it was what De Vanna did just seven minutes later that still has everyone talking about:
495,000 views on YouTube since it was uploaded three days ago, Lisa De Vanna’s bicycle kick in the 14th minute of her team’s match is the most watch video on the NWSL’s official YouTube channel by almost 430,000 views.
De Vanna notched her second goal of the match in the 56th minute after Adams flicked on a goal kick by goalkeeper Brittany Cameron and found De Vanna racing towards goal. De Vanna dribbled around Phillips and easily put the ball into the net to give Sky Blue FC a four goal lead.
Final Voting for Week 8:
1) Lisa De Vanna (SBFC)
2) Lydia Bandenbergh (CHI)
3) Taylor Vancil (CHI)
4) Katy Freels (SBFC)
