CHICAGO -- Chicago Red Stars midfielder Amanda Cinalli (Cleveland, Ohio) was named Co-Women's Premier Soccer League Player of the Week along with FC Dallas' Teresa Eamma. Cinalli had five goals over the team's four-game stretch from June 29 to July 3, scoring in three of those matches to help catapult Chicago into first place in the Midwest-North Division.

The University of Notre Dame alumna had a two-goal performance during a 4-0 win over the Madison 56ers on June 29, a two-goal effort in a 5-0 win over the Iowa Rush on July 2, and had the opening goal and game-winner during a 3-0 victory over Eclipse Select on July 3.

Cinalli and Red Stars defender Jackie Santacaterina (Geneva, Ill.) were named to the WPSL Team of the Week VIII. Santacaterina, a University of Illinois alumna, scored a goal during the Red Stars' win over Iowa and anchored Chicago's defensive line, which allowed only two goals over its four-game stretch.
