IRVING, Tex. - Rice freshman Holly Hargreaves has been named a Conference USA co-offensive player of the week for soccer, the league office announced from its headquarters in Irving, Tex., on Monday (Sept. 24). Memphis sophomore Kylie Davis has also been named a C-USA co-offensive player of the week while East Carolina junior goalkeeper Christiane Cordero earned the league's weekly defensive award.
Hargreaves scored both game-winning goals and had two assists in the Owls' recent undefeated 2-0-0 weekend. After recording the lone goal of the game in the 1-0 victory over Tulsa on Sept. 21, Hargreaves scored the game-winner in the 87th minute of the 3-2 victory over SMU on Sunday (Sept. 23). She also registered the assist on both of Rice's first two goals against SMU. For the two matches, the rookie from New Hope, Pa., played 131 minutes, had a team-high six points on six shots, including four on goal for a .667 shots-on-goal percentage. Hargreaves leads the Owls with six goals on the season, including a league-best four game-winners. This is her first C-USA player of the week award.
Davis netted a pair of game-winners over the weekend, vs. Southern Miss and the golden goal in the Tigers' 2-1 win Friday over No. 6 UCF. Cordero picked up a pair of shutout wins over the weekend against UTEP and Colorado College to help the Pirates to their first 2-0 start in league play since the 2008 season.
The Owls now have a 5-4-2 record on the season. Memphis and East Carolina all share the top spot in the current conference standings with identical 2-0-0 records. The Owls have closed-out their current homestand and are now on the road for each of the next two C-USA matches. The Blue & Gray play at Southern Miss on Friday and nationally-ranked UCF on Sunday, Sept. 28-30.
