PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
MEN’S OFFENSIVE
Dominic Furness, West Texas A&M University, SR, Midfield, Middlesbrough, England, St. David’s

Scored two goals including the go-ahead goal in a 4-2 upset win at then-No. 11 Colorado Mines last Friday along with the equalizing assist early in the match. Then had his second assist on the equalizing goal at Regis on Sunday forcing a 2-2 tie. Had a team-high eight shots (.250) with five on goal (.625). Leads team with nine goals on the year, two assists and 20 points. Ranks eighth all-time in career goals with 23 and ninth all-time in points with 54.

MEN’S DEFENSIVE
Fernando Garza, Midwestern State University, SR, Garland, Texas, North Garland HS

Garza’s solid play at left back keyed a pair of solid defensive efforts in 5th-ranked Midwestern State’s victories over Newman (Kan.) and Colorado State-Pueblo last weekend. The senior from Garland helped organize a defense that allowed just five shots on frame in nearly 200 minutes of field play to produce a pair of positive results. The Mustangs rank 13th in team goals against average (0.31), 16th in shutout percentage (0.67) and 23rd in save percentage (0.857) in the latest NCAA Division II national statistical rankings.

WOMEN’S OFFENSIVE
Leslie Briggs, West Texas A&M University, SR, Forward, Carrollton, Texas, Dallas Parish Episcopal

Led the team with four goals and three assists in three games last week and a 2-1 record. Had two goals versus Texas-Permian Basin and an assist, while tallying the lone goal for the Lady Buffs versus then-No. 11 Dallas Baptist. She came back with a goal and two assists against Eastern New Mexico in WT’s conference opening 3-0 win Tuesday. In just over a year for the Lady Buffs, Briggs has 19 career goals with seven assists and 45 points ranking her tied for eighth all-time in goals and 11th all-time in points.

WOMEN’S DEFENSIVE
Yvette Bedoy, West Texas A&M University, JR, Garland, Texas, South Garland HS

Between the posts, led the Lady Buffs to their first shutout win of the season. She didn’t have to stop a shot in the match as the WT defense held ENMU to just two shots - one high and one wide. It was Bedoy’s third career shutout.
