Helping anchor a pair of Sonoma State women’s soccer shutouts has earned Alexis Sciacqua conference player of the week honors.
The goalkeeper, from Montgomery High, has seven shutouts on the season.
Sonoma State and UC San Diego finished in a scoreless tie Friday with Sciacqua recording a season-high seven saves in the battle of nationally ranked teams. Two days later she stopped a pair of shots on goal in the Seawolves 2-0 win over Cal State San Bernardino.
Sciacqua’s stellar season is a major reason Sonoma State is 10-1-1 overall, 7-1-1 in California Collegiate Athletic Association play.
On the season Sciacqua has made 34 stops, raising her career total to 165 for fifth on the all-time Sonoma State saves list. She also is fifth in program history with 17 shutouts.
