Oct. 15, 2012

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State senior forward Megan Jurado has been named TopDrawerSoccer.com Women's College Player of the Week. This marks the first time this season an Aztec has garnered the honor as it is awarded each week after a review of Division I match reports.

Jurado also earned Mountain West Player of the Week accolades from CollegeSportsMadness.com for the second time this season. She garnered the same honor on Sept. 24, along with earning MW Offensive Player of the Week and being named to TopDrawerSoccer.com's Team of the Week.

The San Jose, Calif., native played a key role in No. 7/13/8 San Diego State picking up victories over UNLV and Fresno State, as she scored the game-winning goal in both contests this past weekend.

On Friday, Jurado tallied an assist on SDSU's first goal of the contest and then scored the game-winner at the 54:13 mark in a 2-1 win over UNLV. Against Fresno State on Sunday, she scored her first goal in the 54th minute and then tallied her seventh game-winner of the season at the 75:20 mark. Jurado also added an assist on senior Sarah Halverson's third goal of 2012 as the Aztecs earned a 3-1 victory.

SDSU (14-1-1, 4-0 in MW play) returns to action on Friday as it plays host to Wyoming. The conference showdown is scheduled for a 7 p.m. PT start at SDSU Sports Deck.
