LAVAL, Quebec (July 27, 2015) – Senior midfielder Sarah Zadrazil (St. Gilgen, Austria) helped the Washington Spirit Reserves to their first W-League Championship in team history on Sunday defeating the Colorado Pride, 2-1.
After two early goals from both teams, the game remained tied until the 89th minute when a perfectly executed give-and-go from the top of the box soared past the Pride goalie to put the Spirit ahead.
Zadrazil played in 12 games for the Spirit totaling 12 points, the third most on the team. She had four goals on 23 shots while dishing out four assists as well. Her 781 minutes played was fifth most on the team.

During the 2014 campaign, Zadrazil garnered many honors including Southern Conference All-First Team and SoCon All-Tournament team. She was also the first player in program history to earn NSCAA All-Region Second team honors.
On the field, Zadrazil recorded 20 assists and eight goals breaking the single-season assists record and helping the Bucs to a program-best 15 wins. She finished the season as the nation’s leader for assists and is the NCAA Division I active career leader in assists per game (0.77).
