SAN BRUNO, Calif. --The West Coast Conference has named its women's soccer Player of the Week for August 20, 2012.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
ELLEN PARKER, JR., M, PORTLAND
Portland junior Ellen Parker is the WCC Player of the Week. She scored what would prove to be the game-winner in the fifth minute as the Pilots opened the 2012 season with a 1-0 shutout of fourth-ranked North Carolina. Parker deftly re-directed a free kick sent in by Amanda Frisbie for the lone tally of the match. Parker also came through defensively by clearing a North Carolina shot off the goal line in the 10th minute. The opening night victory was Portland's first-ever win over the Tar Heels.
Also nominated: Jaiden Thornock, BYU; Sil Tuiofea, Gonzaga; Madison Heilmann, Loyola Marymount; Anisa Guajardo, Pepperdine; Katy Roby, Saint Mary's; Jaciara Mello, San Francisco; Olivia Klei, Santa Clara
