The senior scored the second goal of the contest on a header, then capped the scoring by putting back a deflection just after halftime. Dover extended her scoring streak to four games and had her third multiple-goal game of the year. She leads the PBC with 10 goals and 23 points.

Bayly was effective on both sides of the field in two wins for the Cougars, scoring a pair of goals and holding opponents to 10 shots on goal. The sophomore scored the first two goals against Georgia Southwestern in a 5-2 win, the first multi-goal game of her career. She is an intergral part of a defense that is fourth in the PBC with a 0.87 GAA and has allowed only 11 goals this season.
Goalkeeper of the Week

Jr. • GK • Limerick, Ireland
O'Driscoll recorded a pair of shutouts in two games last week as Clayton State beat Montevallo and then shutout Reinhardt.
