SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego's senior midfielder Veronica Ambort was named to Top Drawer Soccer's National team of the Week after helping lead the Toreros to a 2-0 record this past week.
Ambort played a huge role in the Toreros upset win over No. 19 Cal State Fullerton this past Friday. With the match tied at 1-1, the Toreros turned to the senior from Fountain Valley, Calif., and she delivered. In the 104th minute of the match Ambort was able to redirect a cross from Natalie Vinti with her head past the CSF goalkeeper to give USD the 2-1 win.
Ambort didn't stop there, as she tacked on her second goal of the week in Sunday's 3-0 blanking of the University of Idaho. Ambort scored USD's second goal of the match as she hit a chip shot over the goalkeeper's head off a cross from Leigh Ann Robinson to give USD a 2-0 advantage.
Ambort and the Toreros will return to the pitch on Friday when they host UNLV in a 5 p.m. non-conference match at Torero stadium. This will be the first match of a double header with the USD men's team who will play Long Island University in the nightcap.
