Offensive Player of the Week

Hayden earns his first career Offensive Player of the Week honor after notching two game-winning goals to help the Hoosiers to a 2-0 record last week.  The sophomore midfielder scored in the second half in a 2-0 win against Butler and recorded the lone goal in a 1-0 victory at Ohio State.  His mark against the Buckeyes secured the Hoosiers at least a share of the Big Ten regular season title and the top spot in this year's Conference Championship. 

Defensive Player of the Week

Taylor collects the Defensive Player of the Week award for the fourth time this season after earning his fourth and fifth shutouts of the year.  The freshman goalkeeper recorded seven saves last weekend in two wins for the Nittany Lions.  Taylor made four saves in a 2-0 win over Bucknell and stopped three shots in a double-overtime win against Michigan State, 1-0.
