Staunton recorded 10 saves for the week, including nine against TJC to earn NJCAA Women’s D-I Goalkeeper Of The Week honors.  She improved her overall season record in goal to 10-1 with 45 saves and a .918 save percentage.

Janza, who has a 3-1 record in five starts in-goal this season, moved to the field and scored four goals during the Bulldogs’ wins over Tyler and Jacksonville — two in each match. She earned NJCAA Women’s D-I Soccer Player of the Week accolades.
