FULLERTON, Calif. - Senior Maddie Bennett of the Cal State Fullerton women's soccer team secured her first Big West Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award after scoring a pair of match-winning goals last weekend.
The forward tallied three goals on the week, including a brace which helped the Titans claw back from a 2-0 deficit to take a 3-2, double-overtime victory against Houston on Friday. Bennett tied the score on a header off a corner kick in the 83rd minute, then registered the match-winner with less than five minutes until full time as she won a 1v1 battle against the Cougar goalkeeper.
She also recorded the game-winning goal for the second straight match in Sunday's 2-0 shutout over Kansas State. On a corner kick from Kaya Hawkinson, Bennett's clever back-heel flick trickled over the line in the 74th minute.
Bennett now leads the Big West with six goals, three more than the next highest scorer. She took 14 shots over three contests as the Titans went 2-1 overall.
Bennett and the squad return to action on Friday at Missouri for a 5 p.m. PT kickoff.
