The Southeastern Conference Monday released its most recent soccer players of the week, recognizing outstanding performances from around the league.
Laura Eddy, Georgia
M • 5-8 • Sr. • Atlanta, Ga.
Scored the second goal in a 2-1 win over 17th-ranked South Carolina. It was her first goal since Oct. 17, 2010 – a total of 1,069 days – after missing the last two seasons with ACL injuries. A steady force in the midfield for Georgia, which kept South Carolina off the board and got Georgia off to its best nine-game start in program history, first ever eight-game winning streak, and highest ranked win since 2009.
Caitlin Woody, Georgia
GK • 5-10 • Sr. • Boca Raton, Fla.
Woody posted her seventh shutout of the season – already moving her into a tie for fourth place all-time in UGA history for a single season – as she weathered 17 shots in a 2-1 victory over 17th-ranked South Carolina. She posted a season and career-high seven saves in collecting another blank sheet and giving the Bulldogs eight straight wins for the first time ever while handing the Gamecocks their first loss of 2013. Her play this season has helped the Bulldogs tie their best nine-game start in history.
Savannah Jordan, Florida
F • 5-7 • Fayetteville, Ga.
Jordan turned in her fourth multi-goal match of the season, scoring both goals in the opening half of Florida’s 3-0 win over Alabama on Sept. 20. She is the first Gator to have four multi-goal matches through a season’s first nine matches. Jordan is one of six NCAA Division I players with a double-digit season goals total. Her 10 goals ranks fourth all-time among Gator freshmen.
