Question:

Which under-the-radar NWSL player has caught your eye this season?

Answer:

After just nine games, Tullis-Joyce has clearly put herself front-and-center on the league’s radar – and she’s been garnering a lot of attention for her shot-stopping. She was named to the 2022 Challenge Cup All-Tournament Team in the goalkeeper spot and she’s won NWSL Save of the Week honors four times so far, including for my personal favorite save, which was a fantastic effort to deny Portland’s Natalia Kuikka during the Challenge Cup: 

If she keeps this up, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her name on the 2022 NWSL Goalkeeper of the Year shortlist. And since I’m a firm believer that defense wins championships, I think Tullis-Joyce’s brilliance might be a game-changer for the OL Reign down the stretch.
