Offensive Player of the Week
Melissa Dobbyn, Michigan
JR, F, Livonia, Mich./Stevenson
Dobbyn earns Offensive Player of the Week accolades after scoring two goals and tallying four points last weekend. Against Oklahoma on Friday, the junior forward scored the game-winning goal just 1:28 minutes into the second half to lead Michigan to a 2-0 victory. Against Oklahoma State, Dobbyn led the Wolverines in shots against the Cowgirls with four and notched her second goal of the weekend with just 1:12 remaining in the game to salvage a 1-1 tie. The Stevenson, Mich., native moved into 10th place on UM's all-time scoring list with 57 points (23 goals, 11 assists) after her weekend performance.
Defensive Player of the Week
Lauren Mason, Purdue
SR, GK, Colorado Springs, Colo./Widefield
Mason and the Purdue defense notched three shutouts and went 2-0-1 this past weekend. The senior goalie tallied four saves in 245 total minutes of play while the two victories made her the Purdue all-time leader in games won with 31. Mason's weekend was highlighted on Sunday against Baylor when she snatched a shot off a one-vs.-one attempt, catching a ball that was headed towards the upper corner of the net. The Boilermaker has now started and played the most games in goal in Purdue history as she has seen action in 67 matches while starting 60. This is the fourth Defensive Player of the Week honor of Mason's career.
