Kirk Earns Sweep of Soccer Weekly Honors
Sept. 19, 2002
BERKELEY - California senior midfielder Brittany Kirk has been named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week for Sept. 9-15. Earlier this week, Kirk was selected Pac-10 Player of the Week and to the Soccer America Team of the Week.
The Claremont, Calif., product posted a goal and had the game-winning assist in a 2-1 win over No. 3 Santa Clara Sept. 13. In Cal's first road game of the season, Sept. 15 against Saint Mary's, Kirk helped the Bears escape with a 1-1 tie as she scored with 14 seconds left in regulation.
The assist against the Broncos was the 18th of Kirk's career, moving her into a tie for third place on the Cal all-time list. She is only six assists away from surpassing U.S. national team star Joy (Biefeld) Fawcett's school record of 23.
Cal (4-1-1 overall, 0-0-0 Pac-10), which is ranked No. 6 by Soccer America and as high as No. 4 in this week's Soccer Buzz poll, visits Fresno State Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
