    Women's Soccer


    Central Coast Counterparts Earn Women's Soccer Weekly Awards


    8/22/2016

    UC Santa Barbara junior Amanda Ball and Cal Poly freshman Sophia Brown are the first recipients of the 2016 Big West Women’s Soccer Player of the Week awards.

    Ball’s Hat Trick Sends Gauchos To Victory


    UC Santa Barbara junior Amanda Ball (Chino Hills, Calif./Chino Hills HS) scored all three goals in a season-opening road victory at Fresno State to capture Big West Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week honors.

    The forward recorded UCSB’s first three-goal hat trick since 2004 in a 3-2 triumph over the Bulldogs.  She scored the game-winner in the 102nd minute on a header off a free kick from Maddie Gibson.

    Ball, who scored five goals in 12 matches in 2015, got the Gauchos off to a scorching start with two goals less than six minutes apart for a 2-0 lead.  All three goals came on assists from Gibson.

    Ball put all of her team-high five shots on frame.

    Others nominated: Kelly Kessloff (Cal Poly); Nano Oronoz (Cal State Fullerton); Sylvia Trinh (CSUN); Ashley Gonzales (Long Beach State); Celina Minissian (UC Davis); Kiana Palacios (UC Irvine); Sonest Furtado (Hawai‘i)

    Brown Solid In Cal Poly Debut

    In her first weekend as a collegiate starter, Cal Poly freshman Sophia Brown (Pleasanton, Calif./Foothill HS) recorded her first shutout and a double-digit save effort, notching Big West Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week accolades.

    Brown posted a .923 save percentage as she allowed just one of 13 shots on frame to get past her over a two-game road trip.

    She made her debut against No. 18/15 California and played well in a 1-0 loss.  Brown made 10 saves in the contest.

    Against Pacific, Brown earned her first career shutout with two saves in a 2-0 victory.

    Others nominated: Lindsay Stasinis (Cal State Fullerton); Jovani McCaskill (CSUN); Ashton McKeown (Long Beach State); Kelsey Texeira (UC Irvine); Storm Kenui (Hawai‘i)
