Reiersgord Earns MIAC Honor!

MOORHEAD, Minn. (11/06/07)-- Concordia junior goalie Britt Reiersgord (Edina, Minn.) was named the MIAC Women's Soccer Player of the Week following her back-to-back shutout performance in the conference tournament.

It is the first time in her career that she has won the conference weekly award. She is the second Cobber player to earn the honor this season. Senior forward Rachel Lewis was named the MIAC Player of the Week on Oct. 2.

Reiersgord helped Concordia win their second consecutive conference playoff title. The Cobbers also claimed their second straight MIAC regular season championship and will now play in their second straight NCAA Tournament.

In Concordia's 2-0 win over Macalester in the semifinals, Reiersgord made only one save but continually stopped the Scots' attack by corralling crosses and cutting off through balls past the Cobber defense.

Against St. Ben's in the MIAC title game, Reiersgord made a season-high nine saves and came up with several in-close saves when the game was on the line to preserve the team's 2-0 win.

In Reirsgord's six MIAC playoff games, she has posted a record of 5-1 and has amassed a 0.31 goals against average. In her seven postseason games she has only allowed two goals and has a goals against average of 0.28.

She now has nine shutouts on the year and has recorded 15 of the team's 16 wins. She led the MIAC in goals against average and tied for the conference lead in shutouts.

For her career she has 28 shutouts and 42 wins - both are career school records.
