URFC v. Portland, Player of the Match: Amy Rodriguez

First start, first goal, first one at home.

Cindy Lara - RSL Soapbox

It would be hard to give the Player of the Match Award to anyone other than the player who scored the first home goal in Utah Royals FC history. Enter Amy Rodriguez. It began with a fantastic tackle, proceeded to some excellent skill on the ball, and finished in the back of the net.

In slow motion.

Outside of the goal, A-rod made her first appearance as a starter in well over a year, and only her second within the last two years. Throughout the entirety of the game, she was illustrating excellent movement off the ball looking to open up space and create opportunities.

It’s only a matter of time before she plays the full 90, so NWSL teams, be ready!
