Oct. 15, 2012

After a successful final weekend at home in which the Minnesota soccer team added two wins to their record, two Gophers have been named Big Ten Players of the Week, the conference announced today. Sophomore Taylor Uhl was named Co-Offensive Player of the Week while senior Cat Parkhill picked up the Defensive Player of the week award.

Uhl notched seven points this weekend in two games at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium. In Friday’s match against Illinois, she scored two goals and assisted another in the 3-0 victory. Two days later she scored the lone goal for the Maroon and Gold to push the team to a 1-0 victory over Northwestern. In total, Uhl took seven shots on the weekend, six of those on target to the net. Currently, Uhl ranks first in the conference in points (41), goals (16), and is tied for first in assists (9).

Parkhill earned the accolade after posting two shutouts on the home series. She collected six saves in 180 minutes of play. After the weekend, she sits atop Minnesota’s all-time list in goalkeeper minutes played with 7268:25. She also ranks second with a 0.97 goals against average, second with 44 career wins, and third with 259 career saves.  

The honor is Uhl’s sixth career weekly award from the Big Ten and her second of the season. Parkhill receives her first of the season and third overall.
