Kansas City, MO – For the first time in over a decade, a UC Women's Soccer player has earned national weekly honors as Jody LeMaster was named the NAIA Offensive Player of the Week, announced by the national office Tuesday. LeMaster netted five goals and recorded ten points in the Patriots two conference wins over Pikeville and Life.

LeMaster began the week by recording her second hat trick of the season in a 4-0 win over Pikeville. LeMaster netted her first goal in the 25' minute, before finding the back of the net with three seconds left in the half to give UC a 2-0 lead. Her final goal came in 58' minute to give the Patriots a 3-0 lead.  LeMaster's third goal also marked her 25th career goal for the junior.

She followed up that performance by tallying a pair of goals in Cumberlands 5-0 win over Life. Leading 1-0 in the 27' minute Shelyby Little connected with LeMaster for a goal to extend UC's lead. She added an unassisted goal in the second half for her third multi-goal game of the season. 

For the season LeMaster has 12 goals, which is a new season-best for her. She is currently ranked second in the MSC in goals and points. This marks the second time in LeMaster career that she has earned this award.

Cumberlands is 6-6 overall this season, including a 2-1 mark in MSC play.

The Patriots will return to action Saturday, October 14, when they host MSC foe Shawnee State at the UC Soccer Complex.
