Wodhams named SAC Defensive Player of the Week
ROCK HILL, S.C. — Tusculum University defender Rosy Wodhams has been named the South Atlantic Conference Defensive Player of the Week in women’s soccer for the week ending August 28, the SAC office announced Tuesday.
Wodhams scored two goals and helped anchor a Pioneer defense that surrendered just one goal as Tusculum opened the season with victories over King (7-0) and Young Harris (2-1).
Wodhams, a graduate student from Ware, England, scored in her Tusculum debut in Thursday’s win over King, converting in the 44th minute to give the Pioneers a 3-0 advantage. In Sunday’s comeback win at Young Harris, Wodhams collected the winning goal off a rebound in the 69th minute to give the Pioneers the victory.
In two matches, the Pioneer defense has allowed just eight shot attempts and only four shots on goal, helping Tusculum open the season with two consecutive wins for the first time since 2007.
The Pioneers will look to go 3-0 for the first time since 2004 when Tusculum hosts West Alabama on Friday at 3:30 p.m. at Pioneer Field in the home opener.
