Team of the Week: September 30-October 6

GK Bridgette Skiba, Oregon State – While shutouts have been hard to come by for Skiba, the goalkeeper made several saves at the start of the game against Colorado. On the day, Oregon State was outshot 23-7 but thanks to Skiba came away with the three points.

D Carlotte Wubben-Moy, North Carolina – It’s a second straight appearance for Wubben-Moy, who assisted on the game-winning goal against Clemson and was just one of two players to log the full 90 minutes in Saturday’s victory.

D Camryn Biegalski, Wisconsin – The Badgers picked up a pair of shutout wins in conference play. Biegalski played 90 minutes in both matches, chipping in an assist in the 2-0 defeat of Michigan.

D Grace Bahr, Xavier – Bahr’s left-footed service paid off in a big way for Xavier, as it provided a quick outlet for her side to get forward. She ended up with four assists in wins against Creighton and Seton Hall, leading a stout defensive effort in both matches.
