SALT LAKE CITY - Utah junior goalkeeper Ashley Mason has been named Mountain West Conference Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.
Mason, a Sunnyvale, Calif., native, helped give the Utes a perfect 2-0 start to their season with a 1-0 overtime win at San Francisco and a 3-0 win at Boise State last weekend. Mason saved nine shots combined in the two shutout efforts.
In the USF game, Mason saved a shot on a breakaway opportunity in the first half and a penalty kick in the 70th minute to keep the game scoreless. She had seven saves against the Dons. Mason was solid once again with two saves against Boise State.
