Onumonu had four chances created and an 80% passing accuracy in Reign FC’s road 1-0 win over the Chicago Red Stars. She made the key pass to set up the game-winning goal in the 80th minute.
With the score tied 0-0 late, Onumonu drove into the box and shook off her defender. Her pass to the center of the area was deflected and bounced to Fishlock, who scored the game-winning goal.
Onumonu is the second Reign FC player to win the award in as many weeks. Fishlock was named Week 9 Player of the Week.
