SANDY, Utah (Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019) – Utah Royals FC Reserves concluded its inaugural season with four Women’s Premier Soccer League awards after reaching the WPSL Championship match.  Following a 9-1-0 season, Cameron Tucker was named the Mountain Conference Offensive Player of the Year, Alyssa Jefferson earned Defensive Player of the Year honors, Amy LePeilbet was selected Coach of the Year and the URFC Reserves were named Franchise of the Year, a major milestone highlighting the club’s first season in existence. 
After leading the team to the WPSL final in the club’s first season, Head Coach Amy LePeilbet was selected as the Mountain Conference Coach of the Year. Under LePeilbet the Reserves went 9-1-0 in the regular season, clinching the Mountain Conference title. In the postseason the Reserves won the Central Region Final and advanced through to the National Championship after securing a thrilling victory that went to penalty kicks in the semifinal. 
Much of the Reserves success was due in part to Cameron Tucker, recipient of the Mountain Conference Offensive Player of the Year award. Tucker netted 10 goals during the regular season and recorded a league-leading eight assists. Her two goals in the National Championship helped move the match into extra time. Tucker is entering her junior year as a member of the Brigham Young University soccer team. 
On the opposite side of the field, the recipient of the Mountain Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Alyssa Jefferson, anchored the squad’s backline that allowed only four goals during the regular season. Jefferson is currently a redshirt senior at Brigham Young University. 
Finally, the Reserves program was awarded the Mountain Conference Franchise of The Year award, recognizing the best team in the conference. The team beat out five other programs to clinch the title, outscoring opponents 33-4 to be the fourth-highest scoring team in the league. 
Utah Royals FC Reserves play under Utah Royals FC as a developmental team. The WPSL is a league designed for amateur players including collegiate, post-collegiate and international female athletes.
