Hamilton FC’s Genevieve Richard did to the Ottawa Fury last weekend what no one else could do to that team all throughout the 2011 W-League season.

Shut the Fury out, that is.

For that, the Canadian goalkeeper was named the W-League’s player of the week on Wednesday.

Richard, who attends the University of Wisconsin-Madison, got two shutouts for her Hamilton FC Rage in the past week. She also blanked Rochester, but all the buzz is over the Rage’s 2-0 victory over the Ottawa Fury.

Richard made seven saves in the match against a team that was on a 17-game unbeaten run in W-League regular-season play. The Fury was not shut out last season. And, the Fury is a heavy favourite to go back to the W-League final, where it lost to Atlanta in 2011.

Richard is a former member of the women’s team that played in the U-17 Women’s World Cup in New Zealand.
