MAC Announces Field Hockey Players of the Week

Updated 9/6/2012

Offensive Player of the Week
Luli Gomez Teruel, Ohio, 
Junior, Salta, Argentina, Instituto San Alfonso
Gomez Teruel scored five goals in her first home start as a Bobcat. The junior transfer helped Ohio dominate Radford and set the single-game record for goals in just her third game. She became the first player since 2010 to score five goals in a game. "Luli comes in and she's got great talent and ability," Head Coach Neil Macmillan said. "To see her on the scoresheet like that is fantastic, not many people can score five in a game.”

Defensive Player of the Week
Anastasia Netto, Central Michigan, Goalkeeper
Senior, Trinidad and Tobago / St. Joseph’s Convent
Netto’s performance in goal was crucial in shutting out No. 22 Maine Saturday and holding No. 11 Stanford scoreless in the first half on Monday as part of a 2-1 weekend. The senior made three saves for her third career shutout in the Chippewas 1-0 win over Maine, the first for the program against a ranked opponent since a 2007 win over No. 5 Michigan State. Netto was outstanding in goal against No. 11 Stanford, keeping a clean slate in the first half and making eight saves to keep the Chippewas in the match. The Chippewas took a 1-0 halftime lead, but ultimately fell to the Cardinal, 2-1.
Other Nominees: 
Allie White, Ball State, Forward
Freshman, Kettering, Ohio
White scored her first collegiate goal in the 4-1 loss against Davidson off a penalty corner in the 34th minute.  The freshman has taken six shots for the Cardinals this season and has notched two points. 
Erin Dye, Central Michigan, Midfielder
Senior, St. Louis, Mo. / Cor Jesu Academy
Dye scored a diving, no-look redirection goal that ended up being the game-winner against No. 22 Maine on Saturday as part of a two-goal weekend during which the Chippewas went 2-1. The goal against Maine gave the Chippewas their first victory over a ranked opponent since 2007, when they took down No. 5 Michigan State at home. Dye also gave the Chippewas a halftime lead over No. 11 Stanford Monday with her fourth goal of the season, tied for the team lead. The Chippewas ultimately fell to the Cardinal, 2-1.
Bailey McKeon, Central Michigan, Forward 
Junior Fleetwood, Pa. / Oley Valley HS
McKeon scored the game-winning goal in overtime as part of a two-goal match to give the Chippewas a 4-3 victory over Delaware at Michigan on Friday. McKeon pulled the ball from a scrum in front of the Delaware goalkeeper and found the bottom corner of the cage in the 11th minute of overtime to earn the victory for the Chippewas. She scored her first goal of the match in the 15th minute to give the Chippewas a 2-0 lead. McKeon is tied for the team lead with four goals this season.
Reiann Stoute, Missouri State, Defender
