Offensive Player of the Week
Jessica Okaroafo, Purdue
FR, F, Sylvania, Ohio/Sylvania Northview
Okaroafo was named Offensive Player of the Week for the first time this season after helping the Boilermakers record three come-from-behind victories last weekend. The freshman scored two game-winning goals, one against Butler with 5:17 remaining on the clock and one against No. 19 Nebraska. She now has three game-winning goals this season. On Sunday she drew a foul that set up teammate Jordyn Shaffer's game-winning penalty kick against No. 24 Kansas. This is the first time in school history that Purdue has beaten nationally ranked opponents in back-to-back games.
