FORT WORTH, Texas — The ECNL Texas event is a wrap. That means another group of standout performances from some of the best players to trek to Fort Worth to take part in one of the few national events on the yearly calendar. This group of 20 comprises the best of the best TopDrawerSoccer.com saw on Sunday's final day.

M Katherine Uhler, Lonestar SC U18s: There may not have been a more influential midfielder in Fort Worth than Uhler. The San Antonio native and Notre Dame commit threw her marker down in defense - as evidenced by Lonestar’s spotless goals-against record last weekend - and was consistently dangerous enough in the attack to help Lonestar to a 2-0-1 record over the course of the event.

F Kelsey Turnbow, Crossfire Premier U15s: Speed, speed, speed. Turnbow has jets in spades, and she has vision to boot. She assisted on Crossfire’s only goal in a 2-1 loss to Solar Chelsea, shuttling in a perfect low-burning cross that only needed to be touched to redirect it goal ward. Constantly pressing forward and always available, Turnbow has a bright future ahead.

GK Kindra Lierz, St. Louis-Scott Gallagher U18s: Lonestar SC threw the kitchen sink at Lierz on Sunday, and she didn’t budge an inch. With attack after attack flying down on her doorstep, Lierz was as stealthy and quick as a cheetah, rebuffing shots and organizing her line for defense. In top single-game keeper performances this weekend, Lierz’s day ranks among the best.
