More Wins, More Weekly Awards!

Jamie Rhodes-US PRESSWIRE

Men's and women's soccer had quite the week when it came to awards.

Men's Soccer

When you score two game winning goals in a week, people tend to notice. That's the case with Marquette forward C. Nortey. He was named the Big East's Offensive Player of the Week, and on top of that, he was named National Player Of The Week by College Soccer News. Nortey had a howler of a golden goal to beat Butler earlier in the week before registering the only goal in Marquette's 1-0 win over Creighton on Saturday night. He's scored the game winning goal for Marquette in all four of their Big East matches, and if that doesn't kick off a campaign for Offensive Player of the Year for him, I don't know what will.

The Big East is apparently of the mind that the best defense is a good offense, as senior defender Paul Dillon was named Defensive Player of the Week. Dillon had helpers on three of Marquette's four goals on the week, missing out only on Nortey's game winner against Butler. He played the entirety of both games last week, including helping MU to a shutout win over Creighton.

Women's Soccer

The women's side went one better than the men's side, as they swept all three non-rookie individual honors from the league office. Taylor Madigan was named Offensive Player of the Week, Emily Jacobson was named Defensive Player of the Week, and Amanda Engel was named Goalkeeper of the Week.

I can't really talk about each player individually for their efforts over the last week, because yesterday's game against Georgetown was the only game that Marquette played all week, and yet they *still* swept the league awards. Madigan had the game winning goal and an assist on Maegan Kelly's goal in the second half, Jacobson anchored the backline that held the Hoyas to just four shots on goal, and Engel stopped all four of those shots. Engel didn't even play the full 90 minutes in order to win her third straight Keeper of the Week award, if that makes any sense to you at all.
