Nov. 2, 2005

TEMPE, Ariz. - Manya Makoski, a senior on the Arizona State University soccer team, earned her second player of the week honor as she was selected as one of the members of the Soccer Buzz National Elite Team of the Week that was announced Tuesday. The team is comprised of 11 players from around the nation based upon their play of the past week.

Makoski, who also was selected as the Pac-10 Player of the Week Monday, scored both Sun Devil goals Saturday night, including the ninth game-winning score of her career, to lead ASU past the rival Wildcats, 2-1, in Tucson. With the win, the Sun Devils remained undefeated all-time in the series, increasing their record to 10-0-1 against UA.

Both of Makoski's goals, the seventh and eighth of her senior campaign, came on assists from Brittany Cooper. Makoski first found the back of the net in the 17th minute to give ASU a 1-0 halftime lead. She then tallied in the 70th minute to break a 1-1 tie and give the visitors the victory.

The other members of this week's National Elite Team included Amy Carnell (UNC Greensboro), Holly Grogan (Middle Tennessee State), Elizabeth Guess (North Carolina), Tina Estrada (Santa Clara), Ashlee Pistorius (Texas A&M), Jana Whiting (Columbia), Jessie Wolfe (Richmond), Liz Masson (Utah State), Sue Weber (Hofstra) and Valerie Henderson (UCLA).

The Sun Devils hit the road for the final weekend of the regular season as they face USC at 2 p.m. Friday before closing out the trip at No. 4 UCLA at 1 p.m. Sunday.
