Oct. 8, 2007
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Utah sophomore goalkeeper Lynzee Lee has been named the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Week. BYU junior forward Katie Larkin and Wyoming junior forward Comfort Adetoye have been named MWC Co-Offensive Players of the Week.
Lee, hailing from Kalispell, Mont., blanked Utah State and combined for another shutout with two other keepers in Utah's 6-0 win over Utah Valley. She made three acrobatic saves early in the Utah State match to keep it scoreless at halftime and finished with nine overall. Against Utah Valley, Lee played the entire first half, stopping one shot and not allowing a goal.
Larkin, a native of Draper, Utah, started both games last week and scored one goal in each game on only three total shots. In the 2-1 win over Utah State, she scored the game-winner and assisted on the first goal. At Arizona, Larkin capitalized on a penalty kick to give the Cougars a 1-0 victory. Larkin leads the MWC in game-winning goals with nine.
Adetoye, an Englewood, Colo., native, led the Cowgirls to a 3-0 win over Northern Colorado last Friday. The forward scored two goals and assisted on the third. Both goals were Adetoye's first this season and sixth of her career. Her assist was also the first of the year and seventh of her career.
