Championship Heroics Earn Boujos Spot on National Teams of the Week

Nov. 8, 2006

FULLERTON, CA - A championship performance from Cal State Fullerton junior Kristen Boujos this past weekend has earned the Titans' forward a spot on both the Soccer America and Soccer Buzz National Teams of the Week it was announced on Wednesday morning.

Boujos becomes the third Fullerton player this season to earn National Team of the Week honors from Soccer Buzz, joining seniors Karen Bardsley (Sept. 5) and Erica Janke (Oct. 10).

It is also the fourth selection for a Titan player to the Soccer America weekly honor roll this season, joining Bardsley (Sept. 5), Lauryn Welch (Sept. 20), and Janke (Oct. 11).

Boujos was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2006 Big West Conference Tournament after her two-goal performace against Cal Poly in the championship match lifted the Titans to their second-straight conference tournament title and third-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.

The junior from Whitby, Ontario, Canada, had entered the weekend with only two goals on the season, but it was her third goal in the last three games that proved to be one of the biggest game-winning goals of the year.

Boujos got the Titans on the board first against the Mustangs in the 11th minute and netted the go-ahead goal in the 77th minute after Cal Poly had fought back to tie the match early in the second half.

Entering this weekend's NCAA Tournament matches, Boujos ranks third on the team in scoring with four goals and an assist (nine points).

Cal State Fullerton opens postseason action on Friday night (Nov. 10) at 8 p.m. as the Titans take on Loyola Marymount in an NCAA first-round match at Drake Stadium on the campus of UCLA.
