ANDERSON NAMED BIG SKY SOCCER OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
OGDEN, Utah – After tallying two goals and one assist to lead Sacramento State to a win and a tie over the weekend, sophomore forward Alyssa Anderson has been named Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week.
The weekly honor is the first for Anderson, who was an all-Big Sky honorable mention selection as a freshman last year.
She scored both Hornet goals on Sunday against Pacific, scoring in the 17th minute to give Sacramento State a 1-0 lead and again in the 30th minute to give the team its 2-1 winning margin. It was her second two-goal match already this season and the third of her career.
On Friday Anderson assisted on the Hornets first goal vs. Fresno State. For the week she totaled five shots and scored on each of her two shots on goal while playing 188 of 200 minutes, including all 90 minutes vs. Pacific.
The Santa Rosa native leads the Big Sky with six goals and three game winning goals this season and is tied for the conference lead with 13 points. She is tied for 47th in NCAA Division-I with her six goals and is tied for 44th with .750 goals per game.
