Nichole Schiro, Loyola, Sr., F, 5-9, Okemos, Mich./Okemos H.S.
Schiro scored twice, including the double overtime game winner on Sunday as Loyola defeated Saint Joseph's at Ridley Athletic Complex. The senior executed a perfect give-and-go-and-give with fellow forward Charlotte Miller to score the go-ahead goal in the 65th minute. After the Hawks tied the game with four seconds left in regulation to force overtime, Schiro ripped a right-footed blast inside the right post at 108:13 to provide the game winner. She now has 15 career game-winning goals among her school record 42 goals.
Defensive Player of the Week
Megan Tock, Canisius, Jr., GK, 5-8, Syracuse, N.Y./Marcellus
Tock collected 10 saves in the Golden Griffins' 2-0 victory over Duquesne on Friday evening. In the Griffs' lone match of the week, the junior secured her second shutout of the season, third of her career.
Rookie of the Week
Veronica Saez, Fairfield, R-Fr., GK, 5-10, Bainbridge Island, Wash./Bainbridge
Saez was spectacular in holding Maine scoreless through 110 minutes of action in the Stags only game of the week. The redshirt-freshman picked up her second clean sheet of the season, in just her third appearance, as she stopped a career-high nine shots. Saez stopped five shots in a second-half that saw Maine take eight total shots and earn four of a game-high nine corner kicks. She faced three shots in overtime and stopped the only one put on cage.
