Goede Honored as UAA Defensive Player of the Week
PITTSFORD, N.Y. – After leading the defense to a pair of shutouts last week, Case Western Reserve University women's soccer senior tri-captain Maeve Goede (Westlake, Ohio/Westlake) has been selected as the University Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in her career.
At John Carroll University on Wednesday, Goede and the Spartan backline limited the Blue Streaks to eight shots, including just two on goal. Also during a corner kick, Goede headed in her first goal for the fall and the second of her career on an assist from fellow senior captain Deena Levey (Columbus, Ohio/Bexley).
In the UAA opener at home on Saturday, New York University managed just five shots on goal as the Spartans tallied their fifth shutout of the fall. In addition, Goede assisted on the team's first goal in the victory.
Through 10 matches, the Spartans have held opponents to just 10 goals and have surrendered only one in the last three matches.
Goede and the Spartans conclude their brief two-match homestand on Tuesday, October 2 versus non-league opponent Ohio Wesleyan University. Kickoff at Case Field is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
