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

Furness had an outstanding opening to the 2012 season as he has scored a team-high seven goals in three matches, including four goals in an 8-0 win over St. Mary’s. It was the first four-goal game of his career and seventh in school history. Furness had two goals in the season-opener versus Southern Nazarene and the equalizing goal to help lead the 24th-ranked Buffs to a 2-1 come-from-behind win at Dallas Baptist.

MEN’S DEFENSIVE
Issac Pile, Midwestern State University, JR, Mansfield, Texas, Legacy HS

Pile played a key role in helping Midwestern State limit a stout Texas A&M International attack to just two shots in the Mustangs’ 2-0 win Friday night at the MSU Soccer Field. MSU coach Doug Elder lauded the 5-10 junior from Mansfield’s play after he made a surprise start at outside back. Midwestern extended its home field unbeaten streak to 44 matches and is now unbeaten in its last eight regular season games.

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

Briggs opened the 2012 campaign with a hat trick and all three goals in a 3-3 tie with Colorado Mesa last Friday. Her three goals were all equalizing goals, including a penalty kick was tied the match for good in the 77th minute. It was her first career hat trick and the first since 2008 in team history. It also was the 18th in team history. She then came back with a goal at UC-Colorado Springs in a 4-1 loss. Briggs is one of four players to play all 200 minutes thus far.

WOMEN’S DEFENSIVE
Danielle Edwards, Angelo State University, SR, San Angelo, Texas, Lake View HS

Edwards opened the season with a shutout in goal against Texas-Permian Basin and recorded two saves in Angelo State’s 2-1 double overtime win over New Mexico Highlands.
