Sept. 24, 2012

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State forward Megan Jurado has been named to TopDrawerSoccer.com's Team of the Week. The senior is the lone honoree from the Mountain West on the 11-player squad. Jurado also earned Mountain West Player of the Week accolades from CollegeSportsMadness.com.

The San Jose, Calif., native was instrumental in leading No. 17/25/18 San Diego State to victories against UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara over the weekend.

On Friday against UCI, Jurado tallied a goal early in the second half that helped spark the Aztec offense en route to a 3-2 win. Then in Sunday's contest with UCSB, Jurado tallied the game-winning goal for SDSU at the 33:06 mark after having also scored in the 28th minute as San Diego State was victorious, 3-1. Jurado, who also tallied an assist against the Gauchos, now has five game-winners in 2012 and seven overall goals on the season.

The Aztecs return to action on Friday when they open Mountain West play at home against Nevada. The conference tilt is scheduled for a 7 p.m. PT start at the SDSU Sports Deck.
