Sky Blue FC striker Sam Kerr was named winner of the National Women’s Soccer League goal of the week Wednesday.

And the sun also rises.

Kerr continued her torrid goal-scoring last week and continued acquiring honors as she was feted for connecting in the 3-2 home loss to the Orlando Pride last Wednesday.

She tallied a minute into the second half at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, N.J.

Daphne Corboz and Kerr produced a quick one-two before Corboz sent the ball down the left flank for an onrushing Maya Hayes. The New Jersey native ran towards the end line near the left post, centering a volley to Kerr. As the ball began to arrive, Kerr set her feet before firing a well-driven bicycle kick past goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe for a 2-1 edge.

Your Week 11 Goal of the Week is this bicycle kick finish from Maya Hayes to Samantha Kerr! Sending out a huge thanks to all of the incredible fans who voted.
