Halverson Named MW Co-Offensive Player of the Week
Oct. 8, 2012
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State forward Sarah Halverson has been named the Mountain West Women's Soccer Co-Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon. This marks the senior's second career award and it is the seventh week an Aztec has been honored by the conference in 2012.
Halverson was also named to TopDrawerSoccer.com's Team of the Week and earned Mountain West Player of the Week accolades from CollegeSportsMadness.com. This marks the second time this season an Aztec has been honored by the MW, TDS and College Sports Madness in the same week as senior Megan Jurado accomplished the feat on Sept. 24.
The Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., native was instrumental in No. 10/14/13 San Diego State earning consecutive road victories against Boise State and Portland as she came off the bench to notch the game-winner in both contests this past weekend.
On Friday, Halverson came into the contest at the 71:48 mark and capitalized on a deflected ball less than a minute later to score the lone goal of the contest for a 1-0 MW win against the Broncos. Halverson was subbed in at the 70:07 mark on Sunday and after taking a corner kick from Jurado in the 75th minute, she fired an attempt into the lower left corner to lift the Aztecs to the 3-2 victory over the Pilots.
San Diego State returns to action on Friday when it continues Mountain West play at UNLV. The conference matchup is scheduled for a 7 p.m. PT start.
