In the most followed game of the regular season with No. 1 Florida State against No. 3 North Carolina, Jordynn Dudley, a freshman, shined brightest with a two-goal performance in an instant classic. Dudley opened the scoring as she cut inside a defender before slotting past the keeper. Then again, with the score tied 1-1, the Georgia native rose highest to head home a corner kick. And away from those two goals, the U.S. U19 National Team forward was a constant threat due to her elite combination of pace and technique. If the country was unaware, they certainly are now, as the former high school basketball and soccer star put the nation on notice.

Player of the Week: Jordynn Dudley, Florida State
