Houston Dash midfielder Andressinha named NWSL Player of the Week

The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Media Association selected Houston Dash midfielder Andressinha as the NWSL Player of the Week, the league announced today.

The midfielder scored the game-winning goal in Houston’s 2-1 victory over the Washington Spirit last Saturday which extended the Dash’s unbeaten streak to five games, matching a club record established last season.

This is the first Player of the Week accolade for the 22-year-old, who has scored two goals and tallied two assists in 11 appearances for Houston this season. Andressinha is the second Dash player to earn the award this season and joins defender Poliana as the only Brazilians to be named the NWSL Player of the Week.  

Andressinha and the Dash return to action at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday to host the Boston Breakers at BBVA Compass Stadium for their final game of a three-match homestretch. Tickets for the match are available at HoustonDashSoccer.com.

The NWSL Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by the NWSL Media Association, a collection of writers that cover the league on a consistent basis. For more information on the NWSL Media Association, follow them on Twitter.
