Williams registered five goals in leading the Commodores to a win over 23rd-ranked Wisconsin and a tie with UW-Milwaukee. She scored two goals, including the game-winner, in the 4-3 win at Wisconsin. Three of her game-high seven shots found the back of the net against UW-Milwaukee as the recorded her first career hat trick. Her six goals on the season already matches her total from last year.
Jordan Day, Texas A&M
GK • 6-0 • Jr. • Gilbert, Ariz.
Day allowed just one goal in 200 minutes of action, including her second shutout of the season and the 25th of her career against No. 9 Baylor on Sunday evening. She made six saves against the Bears and won all four of Baylor’s corner kicks in the air on the evening. On Friday night, she earned the 35th win of her career to move into a tie for fifth place on A&M’s career list for goalie wins.
Pamela Begić, Florida
MR • 6-0 • Semič, Slovenia
Begić has turned in at least a point in each of Florida’s last three matches.
