Goede named UAA Athlete of the Week


Senior defender Maeve Goede earned UAA Athlete of the Week honors last week after scoring a header against John Carroll and adding an assist against New York University.

After leading the defense to a pair of shutouts last week, Case Western Reserve University women’s soccer senior captain Maeve Goede has been selected as the University Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in her career.

At John Carroll University on Wednesday, Goede and the Spartan backline limited the Blue Streaks to eight shots, including just two on goal. Also, during a corner kick, Goede headed in her first goal for the fall and the second of her career on an assist from fellow senior captain Deena Levey.

In the UAA opener at home on Saturday, New York University managed just five shots on goal as the Spartans tallied their fifth shutout of the fall. In addition, Goede assisted on the team’s first goal in the victory.

Through 10 matches, the Spartans have held opponents to just 10 goals and have surrendered only one in the last three matches.

Goede and the Spartans will open a four-game road trip Saturday when they travel to Brandeis University for the second game of the conference slate.
