Two Big Goals By Freshman Highlight Nevada's Impressive Week
After starting the season 0-3-1, Nevada bounced back in a big way last week with a pair of one-goal victories. Picking up the winning tally in each contest was freshman forward Angel Meriwether. Meriwether connected in the 76th minute to propel the Wolf Pack past Sacramento State 1-0 on Sept. 5. Two days later she blasted in a shot from 20 yards out in the 85th minute to break a 1-1 tie and give Nevada a 2-1 win over Saint Mary's (CA).
Colorado College Keeper On A Roll
Colorado College freshman goalkeeper Rowan Frederiksen has not allowed a goal in 372:45 of playing time. Frederiksen played 185:37 scoreless minutes last weekend as the Tigers played host to Weber State and Marquette in the Colorado College Invitational (New Mexico was also a part of the weekend's action). Frederiksen stopped seven shots in a 0-0 double-overtime draw with Marquette on Sunday, Sept. 7.
