SEWARD, Neb. – Freshman Maria Deeter has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, announced Tuesday by the league office. This is the first time the Seward native has been tabbed with the weekly honor.
After scoring two goals and assisting another in a GPAC Quarterfinal match, Deeter was selected as the player of the week. This was her second multi-goal match in her freshman season. In the match, the Bulldogs defeated Briar Cliff, 4-0 to advance to the conference semifinal match on Tuesday.
Deeter has started all 19 of Concordia’s matches. The freshman has scored five goals on the year, the third most on the team and leads the squad in total assists with seven. She also owns a .475 shot on goal percentage.
This is the freshman’s first weekly recognition of her career. Previously this season, three other Bulldogs have picked up at least one weekly award from the GPAC. Keeper Chrissy Lind has been tabbed twice while Esther Soenksen and Jessica Skerston have each received the award once this year.
The Concordia women’s soccer team will play in the GPAC Semifinal match for the third-straight season on Tuesday, Nov. 10 in Hastings. The match will begin at 7 p.m. at Lloyd Wilson Field.
