Both Blake and Harris played a large role last week, one which saw the Panthers defeat both Cedarville and Lee by a score of 3-0, with both matches being on the road.
Blake was named Offensive Player of the Week, as she was able to record her first points of her collegiate career in the two games. She logged her first goal for the Black and Gold against Cedarville, in game where she also added one assist. Against Lee, Blake added an assist off a cross into the box. She aided the Panther offense which scored six goals in two games. She is now tied for the team lead, and ranked eighth in the GLIAC in points with four. Her two assists is also good enough to be ranked fourth in the conference.
Harris was named as the Defensive Player of the Week. The freshman goalkeeper was able to record her first two collegiate shutouts last week. Harris went 2-0 starting for the Panthers in both matches. She played a large role in the wins saving a total of 11 shots, and not letting any over the goal line. Harris now ranks fifth in the GLIAC with a 0.74 goals against average for the season. Her 15 saves is also good enough to be ranked fifth in the conference. With the two shutouts, Harris is now tied for the GLIAC lead with two.
Blake, Harris, and the rest of the Panthers will look to build on their momentum as they host Alderson Broaddus tonight at 7:00 p.m. ODU will open their GLIAC schedule on Sunday at Ashland.
