Oct. 15, 2012
BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University forward Kristin Maris has been named the Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for Oct. 7-13.
Maris, a junior from Issaquah (graduate of Issaquah High School), scored the game-winning goal as the Vikings extended their win streak to seven, all by shutouts, and snapped Western Oregon's win streak at four with a 2-0 victory.
Maris opened the scoring in the 56th minute with her team-leading seventh goal of the year and her third game-winner, taking a deflected pass with her back to the goal, turning and firing a shot from 28 yards that hit the crossbar and went in.
Maris also played a key role in Thursday's 1-0 win against Saint Martin's.
WWU travels to Montana State Billings on Thursday, Oct. 18, and to Northwest Nazarene on Saturday, Oct.20.
