San Francisco (April 16, 2024) – Bay FC, the new women’s professional soccer franchise representing the Bay Area in the NWSL, scored a pair of goals in a 10-minute span in the second half, the second of which had midfielder Alex Loera putting Bay FC in front with a long-distance strike in the 58th minute winning her recognition from the NWSL for Goal of the Week in the fourth week of play. 

The goal came after Seattle cleared the ball just outside the box off a corner kick, and the ball landed at the feet of Loera, who unleashed a swerving left-footed strike into the right side of the goal from 25 yards out.
