With one game remaining for each team in the 2011 WPS Regular Season, six players have played every minute this season thus far. Two of them are goalkeepers – Ashlyn Harris (Western New York Flash) and Alyssa Naeher (Boston Breakers) – while Sky Blue FC defender Brittany Taylor, Philadelphia’s Nikki Krzysik and Jen Buczkowksi along with Atlanta Beat defender Katherine Reynolds round out the group.
For Reynolds, the situation is a complete turnaround from 2010.
She played just 35 minutes over the span of three matches in 2010 under Philadelphia Independence Head Coach Paul Riley. That team made it to the WPS Championship, falling 4-0 to FC Gold Pride in the final. But under Atlanta Beat Head Coach James Galanis, Reynolds has played all 1530 minutes of Atlanta’s 17 games this season.
She has been a fixture at outside back for Atlanta, which has struggled to obtain results in 2011. Atlanta is 1-12-4 heading into Sunday’s match against the first-place Western New York Flash, but Reynolds said she has learned a lot this year.
