NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Maggie Westfal, who scored a pair of game-winning goals last week, has garnered another honor for her performance. Two days after being selected as the Ivy League Player of the Week, Westfal was named to the SoccerBuzz.com Elite Team of the Week.
Westfal, who leads Yale in goals (5) and points (12), scored in overtime as Yale edged Harvard 2-1 on Saturday night. She also assisted on the Bulldogs' first goal. Earlier in the week, Westfal scored the only goal of the game in a victory over Boston University.
The two victories also helped the Bulldogs jump five spots to ninth in the SoccerBuzz.com Northeast rankings. Yale also received a vote in the NSCAA national poll, and is ranked seventh in the Northeast.
The Bulldogs host Quinnipiac tonight and Dartmouth on Saturday at Reese Stadium. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
