The Team Of The Week Recognizes Players Who Made A significant Contribution To The Success That Their teams Had During The Week

Jordan Frederick – Freshman – Forward – Tulsa – Frederick was a difference maker on the offensive side of the ball for the Golden Hurricane. She scored the lone goal of the game to give Tulsa the edge they needed to open AAC play with a 1-0 win over Temple. She followed that up by placing a shot into the back of the frame from inside the box after receiving a cross from Madison Tokarchik in a 1-0 win over rival Oral Roberts. Tulsa will seek to build on their current 6-3-1 record when they travel to Tampa to face South Florida on Thursday in an AAC contest.
Rebecca Jarrett – Fifth Year Senior – Forward – Virginia – Jarrett came up with the big play and goal that paved the way for the Cavaliers to come back from what appeared to be an unsurmountable 2-0 deficient at halftime to North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Jarrett made an impressive move off the dribble to create the space that she needed to send a left footer into the back of the frame from the top of the box to trigger a Virginia rally that resulted in a 3-2 win over the Tar Heels. The Cavaliers travel to South Bend to face Notre Dame on Thursday and host Louisville on Sunday.
Maggie Wadsworth – Freshman – Forward – Mississippi State – Wadsworth came up big for the Dawgs with a two goal evening to power Mississippi State past nationally ranked Arkansas 2-0. Wadsworth sent a bullet into the back of the frame from the top of the box after receiving a pass from freshman midfielder Alivia Buxton.

Mississippi State improves to 7-0-2 and will continue SEC play with tough games against Texas A and M on Thursday and LSU on Sunday.
Nia Christopher – Junior – Forward – Towson – Christopher was unstoppable scoring three goals in the first half and two in the second stanza to power Towson past Delaware State. Her five goals established a new program record for goals in a single game. The Tigers also topped UMBC 2-0 during the week to improve to 7-1-1. Towson will begin CAA play with contests at home against Monmouth on Thursday and Northeastern on Sunday.
Olyvia Dowell – Senior – Forward – Oklahoma State – Dowell had a productive week of play.

They will seek to continue their winning ways when they begin Big 12 play with games on the road against Kansas on Thursday and Kansas State on Sunday.
Felicia Knox – Junior – Midfielder – Alabama – Knox is a playmaker who makes good things happen for the Tide. This week she sent a one timer into the back of the frame from the top of the box after receiving a pass from Riley Tanner in Alabama’s 2-0 win over nationally ranked South Carolina. She also contributed the assist out of a free kick on teammate Riley Mattingly Parker’s goal in the win over the Gamecocks. Knox extended her streak of consecutive games with an assist to five when she contributed a helper in Alabama’s 6-0 win over Chattanooga. The Tide rolls upward with an impressive 8-1-1 record to date.
Gi Krstec – Redshirt Senior – Midfielder – Florida Atlantic – Krstec has contributed a goal in the Owls last three games. This week she took advantage of a turnover to push forward and create the space she needed to score in FAU’s 2-1 win over Kansas. Krstec followed that up by contributing the Owls lone goal in their CUSA season opening 1-0 on the road win over North Texas. FAU has won three in a row to improve to 5-3-2. The Owls continue CUSA play with a game at home on Thurday with UTSA and a contest on the road on Sunday against UAB.
Katherine Jones – Junior – Midfielder – South Dakota State – Jones utilized her touch on the ball and quickness to create the angle she needed to score what proved to be the game-winning goal in SDSU’s 1-0 win over Air Force. She also contributed the helper on junior forward CeCe Limongi’s goal in the Jackrabbits 2-0 win over Kansas State. SDSU is now 6-0-3 and will begin Summit League play on Saturday against South Dakota.
Onyi Echegini – Senior – Midfielder – Florida State – The transfer from Mississippi State scored FSU’s first three goals in their 6-0 ACC win over Boston College in Chestnut Hill.

The Noles will continue ACC play with matches in Tallahassee against Louisville on Thursday and Clemson on Sunday.
Sydney Collins – Fifth Year Senior – Defender – California – Collins was at the heart of a solid Golden Bear defense. She never came off the pitch for a Cal defense that limited UNLV to only one shot on goal in route to a 2-0 win and Penn to only three shots on goal in a 3-0 win. The Golden Bears will carry a 5-1-3 overall record into their first Pac-12 game of the 2022 campaign when they square off with UCLA on Friday in Los Angeles.
Katie Groff – Junior – Defender – Duke – Groff put in a rock solid shift on the defensive side of the ball in Duke’s 1-0 win over Syracuse on the road. Groff was a key ingredient in a Blue Devil defense that limited the Orange to a total of only six shots on goal including only one in the second half. Duke junior midfielder Maggie Graham came through in the clutch for the Blue Devils when she scored the game-winning goal in the 89th minute of the match. Duke is now 6-0-2. The Blue Devils resume ACC play when they host Boston College on Thursday and travel to Raleigh to face NC State on Sunday.
