OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Scott Lorenz, Wisconsin FR, MF/F, Barrington, Ill. Redshirt freshman Scott Lorenz recorded a pair of career firsts against Penn State on Sunday. The Barrington, Ill., native earned his first career start in a pivotal Big Ten contest, then recorded his first career goal, the game-winner, in the 61st minute. Lorenz fired a career high three shots, including two shots on goal, to help Wisconsin notch an important Big Ten conference victory.


DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Jake Settle, Wisconsin Sr, GK, Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Kennedy Senior goalkeeper Jake Settle continued his stellar play this season with two more shutouts this past week. On Wednesday at Marquette, Settle stopped three shots, all in the second half, to help the Badgers preserve a 1-0 lead. At home against Penn State on Sunday, Settle made two saves as Wisconsin edged Penn State 2-0 to remain in contention for at least a share of the Big Ten crown. The shutout of the Nittany Lions was Settle's conference leading eighth of the season, moving him into fifth place in shutouts in a single season in school history.
