OL Reign make two additional moves ahead of expansion draft

Ahead of announcing the expansionary protected roster draft later today, OL Reign announced a pair of additional roster moves – the addition of defender Sinclaire Miramontez from concessions, and Nicole Momiki’s permanent transfer to Swedish club Linköpings.

The University of Nebraska graduate Miramontez was drafted by North Carolina Courage in 2020, making him appear as a 7-minute substitute in the Fall 2020 series. She was subsequently released by the club and invited as a tester to the 2021 Louisville Racing camp pre-season, much to admiration. Enough to win a contract with the new club. Miramontez, who plays primarily as a center back, has played 14 games for Louisville this year, including two, but was waived earlier this week. Her older sister, Sydney, plays for Kansas City Current.

While Miramontez has spent most of her career as a central defender, she has been receiving some training at a defensive midfield position in Louisville. Miramontez shared in Racing Louisville’s announcement of their signing with the club: “I’ve started moving more into midfield but I still have the ability to play as a central defender.” However, she spent the vast majority of the season in the center of defense.

Momiki has been on loan to Linkopings since July, where she made 10 league appearances, receiving one goal and one assist. She was signed by OL Reign prior to the 2020 season and appeared in all five 2020 NWSL Challenge Cup matches prior to moving on loan prior to the Fall 2020 Series. This year, Mumiki has appeared three times as a replacement for Reign in the 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup, but has not appeared in any matches of the season. ordinary.
