For the second week in a row, a goalkeeping reigns as the TDS Women’s Player of the Week.
EJ Proctor captures this week’s honor, after making seven stops in 110 minutes of action in a 1-1 draw against Stanford. Proctor tacked on a pair of saves in penalty kicks, as Duke will return to North Carolina for the College Cup.

Player of the Week: EJ Proctor, Duke
TDS Team of the Week (Nov. 23-29):
GK EJ Proctor, Duke – Despite getting outshot on the night 22-8, Proctor and the rest of the Duke defense did enough to force penalty kicks, where the goalkeeper made her pair of stops to secure progression to the College Cup.
D Erica Skorski, Rutgers – While Skroski saw her penalty kick saved, she logged the full 110 minutes, helping her teammate Brianne Reed shutdown Makenzy Doniak and the Virginia attack.
D Kirsten Crowley, Florida State – Another 90 minute shift for the senior, and another stifling shutout for the Seminole back line. Crowley’s calm assurance at the back set the tone as FSU romped to a 5-0 win against Texas A&M.
D Brianne Reed, Rutgers – The stout Rutgers back line still hasn’t conceded a goal in the tournament, a stretch running to four games thanks to last Friday’s 0-0 draw with Virginia. Reed played all 110 minutes and her flip throws provided a set piece threat in the final third.
D Kaleigh Riehl, Penn State – Speaking of glittering defensive marks, the Nittany Lion back line hasn’t conceded a goal in its run to the College Cup either. Despite being a freshman, Riehl continued to excel alongside Elizabeth Ball.
M Michaela Hahn, Florida State – One of the unsung heroes of the Florida State midfield, Hahn netted the second goal of the goal for FSU as it secured a fifth straight trip to the College Cup.
M Emily Ogle, Penn State – Ogle’s first half free kick came with a bit of fortune, as WVU goalkeeper Hannah Steadman mistimed her punch. It was another tidy and quality performance from Ogle to go with the goal.
M Megan Connolly, Florida State – Connolly’s opening goal proved to be all the Seminoles would need, thanks to another suffocating defensive effort. The freshman midfielder’s star is on the rise, and the College Cup will be a perfect platform for her to shine.
F Frannie Crouse, Penn State – One of the nation’s fastest attackers, Crouse provided an insurance goal for the Nittany Lions, blasted a first half finish to the upper corner to make it 2-0 to PSU.
F Kaycie Tillman, Florida State – The freshman helped put the game out of reach, assisting on three goals as Florida State pulled away for its 5-0 victory.
