Offensive Player of the Week
Brad North, Northwestern
SR, F, The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands

North is the second Wildcat to earn weekly accolades in as many weeks after tallying two goals in Northwestern's 3-1 victory over Ohio State last Sunday. The win marked the first in 13 years head coach Tim Lenahan and NU defeated the Buckeyes. Down 1-0 at halftime, the senior forward tied the game up just six minutes into the second half before adding an insurance goal later to notch his third of the year. This is the second Offensive Player of Week award of North's career.

Defensive Player of The Week
Conrad Taylor, Penn State
JR, GK, Colorado Springs, Colo./Liberty

Taylor has been named Defensive Player of the Week after recording a season-high nine saves and notching the 24th victory of his career in Penn State's 3-1 win over Michigan State. The junior goalie made a stellar one-on-one stop in the second half to preserve the Nittany Lions' conference opening victory. Taylor has now started and played in 29 consecutive games and has earned the sixth weekly honor of his career.
