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 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.
D Sydney Cummings, Brown – The junior’s stellar start to the season continued over the weekend, as she helped Brown win its second straight Ivy League game. Cummings played the full 90 minutes in a 2-0 defeat of Columbia.
M Niki Clements, Belmont – The senior had a big week for the Bruins. Clements bagged the decisive tally in a 1-0 win over Tennessee Tech. She followed that up with a hat trick against Jacksonville State.
F Vanessa Kara, Florida – Kara’s transfer to Florida has paid off in a big way now that the SEC season is well underway. During Sunday’s 3-1 win against Texas A&M, she scored twice, including the winning tally.
