Sarah McTigue Earns Conference's Player of the Week Honor
Release: Tuesday 10/05/2010 

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UC San Diego forward Sarah McTigue received the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Soccer Player of the Week honor for the week of Sept. 27 to Oct. 3, conference officials announced Tuesday.

McTigue, UCSD's leading scorer in 2009, put together two impressive performances this past weekend in helping the Tritons defeat Cal State San Bernardino and Cal Poly Pomona at home. The junior from Bellflower, Calif., is currently second on the team in goals with four in 2010.

In the 28th minute of Friday's match with CSUSB, the Tritons earned a corner kick on the right side of the field. After a scrum in the box, Jessica Wi fired a hard shot that was blocked away. McTigue was waiting for the rebound opportunity and took advantage, shooting past the Coyotes' goalkeeper to bump UCSD's lead to 2-0. The score stayed that way to the final whistle, as the Tritons walked away with a 2-0 victory.

On Sunday, McTigue helped UCSD take a 1-0 lead less than six minutes into the match. After a short cross from Annette Ilg bounced off the CPP netminder's hands, McTigue flicked in the rebound chance for her 15th career goal. The Tritons ended up defeating the Broncos in overtime, 3-2.

UCSD will travel to play CCAA South Division rivals this weekend, with a Friday match against Cal State Dominguez Hills and Sunday contest at 15th-ranked Cal State L.A.

Wilson/CCAA Women's Soccer Player of the Week:
Aug. 30 - Sept. 5: Annette Ilg (UC San Diego); Sept. 6-12: Gabbi Segall (Cal State L.A.); Sept. 13-19: Karenee Demery (Cal State Stanislaus); Sept. 20-16: Annicia Jones (San Francisco State); Sept. 27 - Oct. 3: Sarah McTigue (UC San Diego).
