SEWARD, Neb. – A key figure in the early success of the 2017 Concordia women’s soccer team, sophomore goalkeeper Lindsey Carley has pulled in her first career collegiate athletic honor. As announced on Tuesday, Carley has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. A week ago, teammate Maria Deeter netted GPAC offensive player of the week accolades.

A native of Urbandale, Iowa, Carley was busy in goal during two games and 180 minutes of action last week while up against York College and Concordia University, Wisconsin. A co-starter at goalkeeper along with Jessica Knedler so far this season, Carley made 15 saves and surrendered just a single goal last week. She recorded her first career shutout in a 0-0 draw with CUW. On the year, Carley owns a save percentage of .938 and a goals against average of 0.5.

Carley and the Bulldogs (3-0-1) are faced with two challenging games this week. They host Bellevue University at 7 p.m. CT on Wednesday before traveling to Graceland University for a 4:30 p.m. kickoff in Lamoni, Iowa, on Saturday.
