MILWAUKEE - For the second time this season, junior forward Allison Mallams was named to the SoccerBuzz Elite Team of the Week. It was announced today by the magazine. This is the second weekly honor Mallams has earned this week as she was also named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 25.
Mallams earned the honor for her stunning performance last weekend scoring two gamewinning goals against then no. 12 Connecticut and Providence. Mallams found the back of the net in the 108th minute of double-overtime at Valley Fields on Friday, Sept. 22 to defeat the Huskies, 1-0, and give Marquette its first BIG EAST win of the season. She also tallied the deciding goal in a 2-0 shutout at Providence on Sunday, Sept. 24. Mallams has a team-leading six goals for the Golden Eagles this season. She was previously named to the SoccerBuzz Elite Team of the Week on August 31.
The Golden Eagles return to action this weekend, when they play a pair of conference matches in New Jersey. MU will face Rutgers on Friday, Sept. 29 before taking on Seton Hall on Sunday, Oct. 1.
