A field player won Save of the Week? A defender won Goal of the Week? Yeah, this week was a bit upside down.
First up, Red Stars midfielder Danielle Colaprico did her best Kristine Lilly impression.
Red Stars goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher loved Colaprico’s header.

Also this week — FC Kansas City defender Becky Sauerbrunn did her best Abby Wambach impression.
The world’s greatest goal scorer was impressed.
Ummmm Becky!!!!!!! That was amazing. Well deserved. https://t.co/pRMcz1i50K

Sauerbrunn’s goal earned praise from her opponent, Spirit forward Katie Stengel.
TMW you're matched up with the best defender in the world and she blatantly wins the header…thanks for the TV time. You're kind of amazing https://t.co/4uSbQPz7Ef

Even Sauerbrunn couldn’t believe it.
Well…I can honestly say I never saw this happening in my lifetime. Thanks for voting! https://t.co/HIrh6Szk3A
