Gotham FC midfielder and forward ratings

Delanie Sheehan – 5 

There has been no improvement from Sheehan since the Kansas City Current match as she continues to struggle in the midfield. However, she did maintain an 87 percent pass accuracy while getting one shot off, though it was all that came out of her in 60 minutes of play.

Emily Sonnett – 8.5 

The best player on the field this afternoon was Emily Sonnett. Sonnett controlled the midfield the best she could while keeping an 86 percent pass accuracy on 44 touches. She also had 12 recoveries, while winning four duels and two tackles. Once Rose Lavelle returns, she and Sonnett will be unstoppable in the center.  

Katie Stengel – 7 

Katie Stengel started in the midfield today while getting some room to roam. She managed to get two shots off while creating one chance on 44 touches, a pleasant day for the 32-year-old on Saturday.  

Yazmeen Ryan – 7 

Yazmeen Ryan started as the right-winger but played more in the midfield with Lynn Williams back, where she played more defensively than in previous matches. She had three successful dribbles while taking four corners and winning six duels.  

Esther González – 5.5

Esther González was completely shut down by the Washington defense, only getting two shots off while having just one touch in the box. She does have two goals in four matches as she will look to brush off this tough game. 

Lynn Williams – 7.5 

Saturday's captain Lynn Williams was finally back on the field and had a decent game, though failed to get any shots off. She did create two chances while winning six duels, having to play more defensively over the strong attack of Washington.
