WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE WEEK
BC forward Stephanie McCaffrey
Boston College sophomore forward Stephanie McCaffrey has been selected as the New England Soccer News Women’s College Player of the Week for the week ending September 2.
McCaffrey snapped the Stanford Cardinal’s 51-game home winning streak with the 1-1 equalizer on Friday, and added the capper for BC in a 3-0 win over Pacific on Sunday.
McCaffrey tied the game with the Cardinal in the 56th minute when she ran onto a ball sent in the box by teammate Kristen Mewis. McCaffrey’s shot went to the right of Stanford’s goalkeeper Aly Gleason (four saves). It was McCaffrey’s third goal of the season, after a two-goal performance in the win over BU on Aug. 26.
On Sunday, McCaffrey collected her own rebound to close out the Eagles’ scoring against Pacific in the 68th minute.
