It was a week to remember for Texas A&M senior Ally Watt.
The U.S. youth international was unstoppable last week in SEC games against Vanderbilt and Missouri, earning the latest Player of the Week nod with six goals in those two matches.
Last Thursday, Watt converted a penalty on the road at Vanderbilt, and after 90 minutes the score was tied at 1-1. With under a minute left in the second overtime, Watt scored the winner, holding off a defender and lashing home the winner.
Player of the Week: Ally Watt, Texas A&M
She then ran rampant back at home in College Station, smashing four past Missouri in a 5-2 win against the Tigers.
