Shoughro Picks Up National Weekly Honor
Aug. 27, 2008
LAS VEGAS - UNLV sophomore forward Ashleigh Shoughro was named to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week on Wednesday, after scoring a goal in each of the Rebels' first two games of the year this past weekend.
Shoughro, a Las Vegas native and transfer from San Diego, scored the team's first goal of the season in the first half of its season-opener at Loyola Marymount, which finished in a 1-1 double-overtime tie. LMU had entered the game with a 10-game home win streak. She then followed that with the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute in UNLV's 2-0 win at UC Irvine, also on the road on Sunday afternoon. Her two goals on the season leads the team, and is tied for second in the Mountain West Conference.
UNLV (1-0-1) will return to action this Friday, hosting Nevada, Reno in the first game of the UNLV Nike Classic at 1 pm.
