SEWARD, Neb. – A second hat trick of the season helped junior Brynn Suddeth pick up her first conference award as a Bulldog. On Tuesday (Oct. 9), the league tabbed Suddeth as the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Soccer Player of the Week. This marks the second week in a row that the Concordia women’s soccer program has netted this award. Senior Maria Deeter picked up the same honor on Oct. 2.
Suddeth has settled into a starring role since conference play began. She continued her goal scoring exploits last week with the team’s lone goal in a 1-1 draw with No. 15 Hastings and then by finding the back of the net three times in the 6-0 win over Presentation. Suddeth also added one assist. The native of Wichita, Kan., turned in her first hat trick in another 6-0 victory that came over College of Saint Mary on Sept. 19.
“Suds” shares the conference lead for most goals scored in GPAC games only with eight. She’s added four assists this season while becoming a fixture up top. Suddeth is in her first season with Concordia after transferring from Allen Community College, where she tallied 23 goals and 16 assists over two years.
Suddeth and the Bulldogs (8-1-3, 5-0-1 GPAC) will return to action on Wednesday with a GPAC contest at Doane (2-10, 0-6 GPAC). Kickoff from Crete, Neb., is set for 5 p.m. CT.
