A difference maker off the bench for the Hornets this season, Miras wasted no time in impacting Sunday's match. After entering the game in at the 38:48 mark, Miras put her team ahead 1-0 with a goal just 27 seconds later. The score was her first of the year and proved to be the game-winner as the Hornets shut out the 'Runners on the road.
For good measure, Miras added her second goal in the 79th minute, all but sealing the victory for the Hornets. Sunday was the first career brace for Miras, who now has five points (two goals, one assist) this season, tied for third most on the team.
With Miras' selection, Sacramento State has won back-to-back Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week awards.
