#HometownSoccer Players of the Week: A pair of JJ’s lead their clubs to big wins

The Evergreen Premier League today announces the honorees of the second week of play with the #HometownSoccer Players of the Week awards for May 13, 2018. Washington Premier FC’s  JJ Schmeck (offense) and Oly Town FC goalkeeper JJ Olson (defense) were voted by league head coaches and general managers as worthy of note for their standout contributions to their sides.

JJ Schmeck (Edmonds CC, Tacoma Stars Reserves) began the second half of play on Sunday against Vancouver Victory just like all his Washington Premier FC mates did- wondering what might need to be done to break up a 0-0 deadlock. The rest is told in the final stats – Schmeck scored two goals and assisted on a third as WPFC pulled away to win big 4-0 and remain unbeaten in 2018.

JJ Olson (St. Martin’s) was ready when the Artesians needed him most. A 2-0 Oly Town FC lead had just tightened to 2-1, making for a frantic final fifteen minutes for the home side. Olson organized his defense, was brave in the air, and cleared away what he couldn’t grab as his club recorded a big 2-1 win over the defending EPLWA Champion Seattle Stars.

  1. Reblogged this on Oly Town Artesians and commented:
    Artesians goalkeeper JJ Olson was named the Evergreen Premier League’s Defensive Player of the Week on Wednesday, following a six save performance in Oly’s 2-1 win over the Seattle Stars on Sunday afternoon at Black Hills High School.

    “JJ made a several critical saves early in the second half,” said Artesians head coach Matt Herrera. “Both teams were affected by the heat and the long break after the injury, but JJ kept his focus and secured our first win of the season.”

    Olson has been a constant presence for the Artesians, both indoor and outdoor. He has played in 13 of Oly’s 16 EPLWA games, and has been the primary keeper over the past two seasons for the WISL squad.
