Robison Honored by Soccer America
Oct. 1, 2008
SEATTLE - University of Washington senior midfielder Jenna Robison was named to Soccer America's women's Team of the Week, the website announced Tuesday.
Robison had the game-winning goal in overtime in the No. 18 Huskies' 2-1 win over Hawai'i on Sunday, improving UW's record to 9-1 this season.
The Huskies and Rainbow Wahine were tied with just over a minute left in the extra period when Hawai'i committed a foul on UW's end of the field and Robison was chosen to take the free kick. Standing on the far right side of the field from 30 yards away, the senior lifted a high arching shot toward the far post which went over the head of Hawai'i's goalkeeper and curled into the net. It was Robison's first goal of the season.

Robison was one of four midfielders across the country to be selected to the Soccer America Team of the Week, the first such honor of her career. She has a knack coming up big late in games for UW as both of her goals were game-winners last season, including one against Eastern Washington that broke a tie in the 85th minute.
An All-Pac-10 honorable mention selection in 2006, Robison is one of four Husky seniors looking to end their careers on a high note after the team has suffered three-consecutive losing seasons. This year's squad has equaled the 2000 and 2004 teams with their 9-1 start as the best10-game mark in program-history.
The Huskies face their final non-conference test this Friday when they travel to face the third-ranked Portland Pilots, their first of four consecutive games against top-five teams. Game time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at the Clive Charles Soccer Complex.
