Brianna Young Named Offensive Player of the Week in the SCAC


San Antonio - Trinity University Tigers senior midfielder Brianna Young of Rockville Centre, N.Y. (South Side), has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.

Young scored three goals and two assists to pace the Tigers in the two road victories last weekend. Trinity edged Austin College 2-1 in double-overtime in a SCAC game and blanked the University of Dallas 4-0 in a non-conference tilt.

The Tigers (6-0-0, 1-0-0), led by head coach Lance Key, moved up in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division III poll to No. 9, from 10th. Trinity, which has yielded only one goal this season, maintained a No. 6 ranking in the poll.

Young fired in the game-winning goal in last Friday’s victory over Austin College, breaking a 1-1 tie. Last Sunday, Young scored twice and assisted on the Tigers’ other two goals to give her a total of eight points in the two games.

For the season, Young leads the team with 12 points and four assists, and is second on the squad with four goals. Young’s game-winner against Austin College was her second of the season.

Trinity will host San Antonio’s Our Lady of the Lake University at 8 p.m. Friday.
