BOGUS NAMED PAC-10 PLAYER OF WEEK
ARIZONA STATE freshman forward Elizabeth Bogus has been named Pac-10 Women's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 24-30.
Bogus, from Sandy, Utah, posted three goals, including two game-winners, as the Sun Devils (6-1-2) notched shutout road wins at Georgia and Auburn. The 2-0 win against the Bulldogs and 1-0 win over the Tigers marked the fourth and fifth consecutive shouts for ASU, matching the school record. Bogus leads the team with six goals and four game-winners on the year, which ties for second on Arizona State's all-time single-season chart.
This is the first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor for Bogus and Arizona State's fifth such honor all-time.
ALSO NOMINATED: Kelly Nelson, Fr F, ARIZ; Courtney Carter, Jr MF, OSU; Natalie Sanderson, So F, STAN; Kim Devine, So F, UCLA, Amanda Roach, Jr D, USC.
ARIZONA: Freshman F Kelly Nelson scored a school record-tying five goals in the 10-0 win over Belmont Sept. 27. Freshman GK Amanda Martin tallied a season-high 11 saves at Kentucky Sept. 29. UA has already registered four shutouts on the season, the most since 1999. The Cats are 4-0-1 this year when holding opponents to one goal or less.
ARIZONA STATE: The Sun Devils notched their fourth and fifth straight shutout wins last week, tying the school record for consecutive blankings. ASU downed Georgia (2-0) and Auburn (1-0) on the road, the first time the Tigers were held scoreless this season. Freshman Elizabeth Bogus leads ASU with six goals on the year, and has three in the last two matches.
CALIFORNIA: The Bears' five-game unbeaten streak came to an end Sept. 29, with a 3-1 loss to Hartford. In Cal's 4-2 win over Penn, senior Brittany Kirk posted her third goal on the season. Senior All-American Laura Schott returned to the Cal lineup Sept. 27 at Penn, missing the previous six games with an MCL sprain and a one-game red card suspension.
OREGON: A record crowd of 1,588 was on hand for the Ducks' Sept. 29 match against North Carolina. The showing broke the previous Papï¿½ Field attendance record by nearly 700 people. Oregon received solid work from GK Sarah Peters, who made 10 saves against the top-ranked Tarheels. Valerie Mayer, Cristan Higa and Carlie Ashcraft each tallied one shot for the Ducks.
OREGON STATE: The Beavers continue their seven-game homestand when they host New Mexico Oct. 4 at 3 p.m. Portland put an end to Oregon State's four-game win streak and seven-game unbeaten streak with a 2-1 win on the Beavers' home field. It marked OSU's first home loss since Oct. 28, 2001.
STANFORD: The showdown between the No. 2 Cardinal and top-ranked North Carolina takes place Oct. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Saint Mary's Tournament. Stanford went 2-0 in the Santa Clara adidas Classic last week, defeating Tennessee 2-0 and Montana 8-1. Eight different Cardinal scored against the Grizzlies, led by Jennifer Farenbaugh and Natalie Sanderson, who notched one goal and three assists each.
UCLA: Powered by a pair of goals from sophomore Kim Devine, the Bruins recorded their fourth straight shutout with a 6-0 win over BYU Sept. 25. Devine played her freshman season at BYU in 2001. UCLA defeated the Mexican National Team 2-1 in an exhibition Sept. 28 at Frank W. Marshall Field. Bruins accounted for all three goals, as Whitney Jones and Stacy Lindstrom scored for UCLA and freshman Iris Mora scored for her native Mexico.
USC: The Trojans have allowed just three goals in their last seven games. Sophomore GK Julie Peterson notched her fifth shutout on the season in the scoreless tie against San Diego Sept. 27. Peterson needs one more shutout to tie the school season record held by three others. USC returns home this week for a pair of non-conference games against West Coast Conference teams Loyola Marymount and Santa Clara.
WASHINGTON: Senior GK Hope Solo registered 22 saves in two matches last week, as the Huskies played No. 3 Texas to a 1-1 tie and fell at No. 7 Texas A&M, 2-1. Texas outshot UW 31-13, and Solo made 10 saves, with three coming in the two 10-minute overtime periods. Solo notched a season-high 12 saves, one shy of her career-best total, against the Aggies. UW takes on its third straight Top-10 opponent in Portland Oct. 5.
WASHINGTON STATE: The Cougars face BYU in their final non-conference match of the season, Oct. 3 in Pullman. Junior GK Sarah Leibowitz saved a career-high seven shots in the 2-0 loss at Pepperdine Sept. 27. Two of Washington State's three losses have come at the hands of Top-25 teams.
