SWAC Selects Two Hornets


The Southwestern Athletic Conference has named Alabama State University’s Kylee Hathaway and Ally Murphy as SWAC Soccer Players of the Week for August 27, 2013.
Hathaway was tabbed Goalkeeper of the Week and Murphy earned her first Offensive Player of the Week nomination of her career.
Dominating in goal saves this weekend earning a 1-1 record and playing 180 minutes, Hathaway faced seven shots-on-goal from South Carolina State University. She rejected their efforts, landing a scoreless match for SCSU. She was credited the 5-0 shut-out against the Lady Bulldogs totaling 20 saves and averaged a .870 saves percentage for the week.
Murphy currently leads the Lady Hornets in points (4) and goals (2). She registered two goals, two shots and two shots-on-goal recording four points in ASU’s 5-0 win over SC State (August 25). She completed the week with 56 minutes of play and has taken action in all games since the start of the 2013 season.
“You always want to see your players get rewarded for their performance” stated Head Coach Jodie Smith, “Kylee is one of the premier goalkeepers in our conference, and with Ally its good for a freshman to come off the bench and contribute to a big win.”
