Michelle Mooren, Anna Dolhansky headline weekly accolades

By Jackson Alexander

Duquesne’s Michelle Mooren and La Salle’s Anna Dolhansky were named the Atlantic 10 Conference Women’s Soccer Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively, as announced by the league office on Monday.

Mooren recorded two game-winning goals and guided the Dukes to a 2-0-0 record in conference play last week.

The sophomore started the weekend with the opening goal in a 2-0 victory versus Fordham. She scored her first collegiate goal in the 32nd minute providing her team with a 1-0 lead.

Mooren followed that performance with her second game-winner of the week in a 2-1 win against La Salle. With 15 minutes left in regulation, Mooren drilled a free kick by the Explorers’ keeper.

The two wins improved the Dukes overall record to 7-6-1 and 4-1-0 in conference play.
Dolhansky registered both goals in La Salle’s 2-1 double-overtime win over St. Bonaventure.

The freshman entered the game goalless through her first 14 matches, but that changed shortly after halftime.

Less than two minutes into the second half, Dohlansky scored her first collegiate goal, gathering the rebound on Jess Hopton’s errant shot. The Bonnies would tie the game later in the half, but solid goalkeeping and defense on both sides sent the game into overtime.

Forty-five seconds into overtime, Dohlansky scored her second goal of the game and gave her team their first A-10 victory of the season.

La Salle (7-7-2, 1-3-1 A-10) will finish its regular season with a four game away series.
SLU offense improving

The Saint Louis women’s soccer team rejuvenated its once dormant offense with a 3-0 blowout against George Washington.

On Sunday, Emily Kryzer, Ashley Brazill and Jessie Jarrett scored three first half goals to lead the Billikens to victory on Senior Day.

Kryzer, a senior, kicked off the scoring 13 minutes into the game on a feed from freshman Jenny Hummert.

At the 31 minute, seven second mark, Brazill, also a senior, extended the lead to two after capitalizing on an error by the Colonial defense.

Jarrett, a freshman, provided the final insurance goal minutes later on a feed from Brazill.
SLU goalkeeper Katie Walsh made four saves and recorded her eighth shutout of the season.

The Billikens (3-8-5, 2-4-0 A-10) suffered through severe scoring slumps throughout the first half. Five games this season have ended in 0-0 ties and at one point SLU had three goals in its first 12 games and a 1-6-5 record during that stretch.

Since that drought, the Billikens have five goals in their last four games and a much improved 2-2 records to show for it.

SLU travels to face Charlotte this Saturday; Weinraub ties record

Charlotte’s Whitney Weinraub tied the schools career goals scored record last week.

The senior scored the golden goal against George Washington on Friday night. The game-winner, her 36th career goal – came in the 46th minute of the 49ers 1-0 win.

She temporarily joins former Niners Courtney Cook and Hailey Beam as top goal-scorers in school history.

Her decorated career is highlighted by her 36 goals, 22 assists, 94 points, two A-10 Championships and a pair of A-10 Offensive Play of the Year Awards.

Charlotte also beat Richmond 1-0 last week to vault itself into second place in the conference. Brooke Mulloy came off the bench to score the game’s only goal, while Oni Bernard provided Mulloy with the assist.

The team has put themselves in position to compete for its third A-10 Championship in four years. Weinraub, and junior Macky Wingo lead the 49ers potent offensive attack.

The 49ers (12-4-0, 5-1-0 A-10) will celebrate their Senior Night on Saturday against Saint Louis.
