After a slow start to the season, Raphino reminded the nation why she is one of the best players in college soccer. Against Yale, she did it in the air with two headed goals and a penalty to earn a hat trick. And that trend continued against Penn, with an assist from a flicked-on header, then later scoring a right-footed shot following a scramble in the box. In total, Raphinho recorded four goals and an assist in a truly dominant week.
