Ashley Hatch

ESPY Winner

This year’s NWSL Player of the Year is Ashley Hatch, a former BYU Women’s Soccer star. It was her first career ESPY.

Caprice Dydasco of NJ/NY Gotham and Jess Fishlock of the OL Reign were beaten by Hatch, 27. Hatch won the league’s Golden Boot award last year after scoring 11 goals for the Washington Spirit. This season, she’s scored four goals in ten games. The NWSL season will conclude with 12 games remaining in 2022.

With the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Hatch was signed by the North Carolina Courage. After her first season with North Carolina, she was loaned out to Melbourne City, and when she returned, she was traded to the Washington Spirit.

When Hatch was a senior at BYU, she scored 19 goals and was one of the nation’s greatest players.

Hatch has flourished since joining the Spirit, both in the club and on the international stage. Within the first 24 seconds of the match against Australia earlier this year, Hatch put the United States Women’s National Team up. It was the third-fastest goal in USWNT history.

Starting two of the USWNT’s last seven games, Hatch has played a critical role. On June 28, she came on as a substitute in the 2-0 victory over Colombia at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

On July 18, the USWNT defeated Canada 1-0 in the CONCACAF Women’s Championship final to claim the title of champions. The U.S. resumed its domination with Alex Morgan’s 78th-minute penalty kick.

On the international stage, Hatch has made a significant contribution, but he is constantly competing with Alex Morgan for the starting striker spot. Hatch started only once during the CONCACAF Women’s Championship, whereas Morgan started all five games.

The North Carolina Courage selected Hatch with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft. On April 10th, 2017, she signed a contract with the team. A 1–0 victory over Portland Thorns FC on April 17 marked her debut for the team. In a 2–0 victory over FC Kansas City on June 3, Hatch scored her first goal.

On June 24, she scored the game-winning goal in Courage’s 1–0 triumph over the Boston Breakers. On July 8 against the Seattle Reign FC and August 19 against the Washington Spirit, she scored the game-winning goals.

A 4–0 win over the Houston Dash saw the Courage clinch a position in the NWSL Playoffs with a 16–7–1 record, claiming the NWSL Shield, with Hatch scoring the fourth goal. In her 24 appearances for the Courage, Hatch netted seven goals. The Courage lost 1–0 to the Portland Thorns in the NWSL Championship Final after beating the Chicago Red Stars 1–0 in the semi-finals.
