Kim Little named NWSL's player of the month, again

Seattle Reign midfielder scored four goals and led her team to a 3-0-2 record.

The Seattle Reign, in case you haven't noticed, are kinda having their way with the NWSL. A year after taking their licks, the Reign sit atop the standings with an 8-0-2 and a +14 goal-difference. There are a lot of reasons this season has gone well, of course. But no one has been a bigger part of the turnaround than Kim Little.

The Scottish midfielder leads the league with nine goals and has firmly established herself as the leading candidate for MVP. Four of those goals came in a very good month of May that saw the Reign go 3-0-2. Somewhat unsurprisingly, Little was named the NWSL's Player of the Month. It's the second consecutive month she's won the award, the first time a NWSL player has won the award twice, let alone in back-to-back months.

“I’m really pleased for Kim she has been a consistent performer in the league and has given every opposition we have played problems,” Reign head coach and general manager Laura Harvey said in a team release. “She has worked hard to put in good performances and we hope that she can continue in this good form she is in.”

Although it didn't count for this award, Little has also scored in five consecutive games after this beautiful free kick against Sky Blue FC:
