LOGAN, Utah - Utah State sophomore goalkeeper Jeannie Woller was named Mountain West Soccer Defensive Player of the Week; it was announced by the league on Monday.
Woller earned her first career player of the week honor and became the first Aggie to earn the award in the Mountain West, as USU is in its first season in the new league after eight years in the Western Athletic Conference.
Woller, a Sandy, Utah native, was solid in net, earning her second career complete shutout after Utah State defeated Creighton in the season opener on Aug. 23, 3-0. At one point in the second half she made two saves within four minutes to keep the Bluejays off the board. The sophomore was stellar in net to help preserve the Utah State win with five second-half saves and seven saves overall.
Despite the quick start by the USU offensive unit, Woller was crucial for the Aggies with several diving saves, including stopping a Lauren Sullivan shot from finding the back of the net with a dive to her right in the 56th minute. She was also able to help the Utah State defense fend off five Creighton corner kicks.
Boise State midfielder Brooke Heidemann was named the MW's Offensive Player of the Week, scoring in a win against Creighton and an overtime loss to Idaho State.
Utah State is back in action on Monday, Aug. 26 at 4 p.m. against in-state foe Utah Valley. The Aggies will then take to the road for its first match away from home, taking on UTEP on Friday, Aug. 30 at UTEP at 7 p.m.
Live stats for Monday's match will also be available through the "GameTracker" link at www.UtahStateAggies.com, the official web site of USU Athletics. There will not be any video streaming available for the match.
Admission to all home USU soccer matches at Chuck and Gloria Bell Soccer Field is free.
