SEATTLE -- Washington forward Mason Robertson was named the Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week for his on-field efforts Nov. 4-10. Robertson becomes the second Husky to earn this award this season, following Taylor back on September 10.
The Disney Soccer/NSCAA Players of the Week are announced every Tuesday throughout the fall college season during the College Highlights and Rankings Show on NSCAATV.com. The program was expanded to include a men's and women's winner from all three NCAA divisions in 2013.
Robertson, a freshman from Phoenix, scored the game-winning goals in both of the No. 3 Huskies’ games last week. Against Stanford, Robertson headed in a corner kick from teammate Justin Schmidt from five yards out in the 30th minute.
The freshman forward followed up with the golden goal in Washington’s comeback win against No. 4 California. In the 2-1 overtime victory, Robertson sent the game-winner in with 37 seconds left in the extra period.
Both wins moved the Huskies in to first place in the Pac-12 with one game left for the top three teams in the conference (Washington, California and UCLA).
The new NSCAA poll was also announced Tuesday with the Dawgs remaining at No. 3 in the country. Washington's RPI ranks second in the nation.
The Dawgs finish the season on Sunday at Oregon State for an 11 a.m. kickoff.
