WOMEN’S PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Hofstra’s Sam Scolarici
Hofstra sophomore Sam Scolarici has been named the Big Apple Soccer Women’s College Player of the Week for the week ending October 28.
Scolarici (Aldie, Va) scored two goals, including the equalizer off a penalty kick late in the second half, before the Pride scored three goals in the shootout to advance past Northeastern in the Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinals on a rainy and windswept Parsons Field on Sunday.
