Lindsey Luke leads the nation in goals-against average and save percentage
Oct. 8, 2013
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Utah goalkeeper Lindsey Luke was named Defensive Player of the Week for Pac-12 Women’s Soccer for the week of Sept. 30-Oct. 6, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Luke earned Defensive Player of the Week honors after recording consecutive shutouts in two 1-0 wins against Oregon and Oregon State over the weekend. Luke now has seven shutouts on the season, which is one shy of the all-time Ute mark of eight set in 2003.
The sophomore from Corona Del Mar, Calif., has allowed only one goal in 800 minutes of action this season and leads the nation in goals-against average (.113) and save percentage (.970). The Utes have only lost one game on the year and are unbeaten in conference play thanks in large part to their defense.
This is the second-career weekly honor for Luke and the fourth all-time for Utah.
Utah is on the road this week, traveling to Seattle to face Washington on Friday night at 7 p.m. PT then heading to Pullman to battle Washington State at 11 a.m. PT in a game that will be televised live on the the Pac-12 Networks.
