Stanford's Noyola Named Women's Soccer Pac-10 Player of the Week
Sept. 2, 2008
Walnut Creek, Calif. - Stanford freshman midfielder Teresa Noyola has been named Pac-10 Women's Soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 26-Sept. 1, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Noyola, a local product from Palo Alto, Calif., scored three goals over the weekend in the Cardinal's games against Navy and No. 15 Boston College. The freshman, who has played only three college games to date, scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Stanford's 3-1 win over Navy. In the Cardinal's shut out of Boston College, Noyola lofted the ball out of reach of the Eagle's goalie, marking her third goal of the weekend.
Although not credited with an assist, Noyola also helped set up another goal, in Friday's game, transitioning the ball from offense to defense.
With the stellar play of Noyola, Stanford is on top of the Pac-10 standings (3-0-0, 0-0-0 Pac-10), tied with UCLA. Next, the Cardinal will face Auburn in Athens, Ga., on Friday, Sept. 5 at 7:30 ET. Stanford is now tied with UCLA for the most all-time Pac-10 Players of the Week with 20.
Also Nominated: Karina Camacho, So., MF, ARIZ; Lisa Kevorkian, So., F, CAL; Lauren Cheney, Jr., F, UCLA; Ashli Sandoval, So., MF, USC; Veronica Perez, Jr., F, WASH.
