Here’s who was the most successful on the leaderboard in Week 1, and who to watch for Week 2.
Goalie Taylor Moreno (442 points) picked up where she left off last season in the No. 1 spot on the leaderboard. She posted three shutout quarters in the first two games of the season, and earned MVP 1 honors on two occasions.
Moreno recorded a league-record 257 leaderboard points in the season opener and ranks first in saves with 32. Her 0.64 save percentage is also the best in the league.

STICKING IN ORANGE
Sam Apuzzo (426 points) held on to the No. 2 spot on the leaderboard, aided by a sweep of win points in the Week 1 finale against Team Moreno. Apuzzo leads the league with nine goals, adding seven draw controls and three assists.
She has also earned MVP 1 honors twice.
DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK
Despite an 8-4 loss to start the week, Team Read bounced back in its final two games of the week to grab 230 win points overall. The victories landed two players in the Top 4, including captain and goalkeeper Britt Read (404 points) and defender Lizzie Colson (328 points).
Read posted 29 saves throughout the week and a career-high 228 leaderboard points for Saturday’s effort.
Colson ranks second in caused turnovers with 22.
WHO TO WATCH
Newcomer Abby Bosco was atop the defensive stat sheet in the first week of competition. With an MVP 3 honor following Sunday’s game, the defender is No. 5 on the leaderboard. She is tied for caused turnovers (6) and is second in draw controls (12). She’s also picked up seven ground balls.
Izzy McMahon is second in the league in goals with 8 on the season so far, including two hat tricks. At No. 13 on the leaderboard, McMahon has been hurt by one stat primarily: turnovers. The attacker has lost 120 points as a result of giving up the ball.
She’s someone to keep an eye on in Week 2. If she’s able to keep possession and continue to score, she could find herself higher up on the leaderboard.
