MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 6, 2020) – Junior defender Jordan Brewster of the No. 7-ranked West Virginia University women’s soccer team has been named the Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.
Brewster scored a goal and anchored a solid defensive effort in the Mountaineers’ 2-1 win over Texas on Oct. 2, at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium in Morgantown. The North Canton, Ohio, native opened the scoring with a penalty-kick goal in the 17th minute, her first of the season. From there, Brewster helped WVU concede just four total shots to the Longhorns, including two on goal. In all, WVU outshot UT, 18-4, in the victory.
Brewster, a two-time All-Big 12 Second Team selection, has tallied three total points (1G, 1A) in four games to begin the season. The honor marks the first of her career, while she was previously named the Big 12 Freshman of the Week on Oct. 9, 2018. It also marks WVU’s first weekly conference accolade since Hannah Abraham was named the league’s offensive player of the week on Oct. 23, 2018.
Additionally, Brewster was included in TopDrawerSoccer.com’s Women’s Team of the Week on Tuesday.
West Virginia (3-1, 3-1 Big 12) returns to action on Friday, Oct. 9, at Texas Tech. Kickoff at John Walker Soccer Complex in Lubbock, Texas, is set for 8:15 p.m. ET.
