Kelsey Booth Named MW Offensive Player of the Week

Oct. 29, 2012

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State forward/midfielder Kelsey Booth has been named the Mountain West Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon. This marks the sophomore's first career award and it is the 10th week an Aztec has been honored by the conference this year.

The Concord, Calif., native was instrumental in leading No. 6/11/6 San Diego State to a perfect 7-0 mark in MW play as the Aztecs defeated second-place New Mexico, 1-0, on Friday at SDSU Sports Deck.

After a scoreless first half, Booth came out and tallied the game-winner just 2:54 into the second half for her second career goal. Megan Jurado set up the game-deciding sequence as the senior passed a ball to Booth who fired a great shot from 18 yards out that ultimately gave San Diego State the win.

The Aztecs (17-1-1, 7-0 MW) are set to play host to the 2012 MW Women's Soccer Championship this week at SDSU Sports Deck. San Diego State's first match will be at 7 p.m. PT on Friday, Nov. 2, against the winner of Wednesday's quarterfinal match between fourth-seeded UNLV (11-3-4, 3-1-3 MW) and fifth-seeded Fresno State (4-10-5, 2-3-2 MW).
