Leah Bratt Named MW Player of the Week
Aug. 20, 2012
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force junior midfielder Leah Bratt was selected Mountain West Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, announced today by the conference office. Bratt joins San Diego State goalkeeper Rachel Boaz, who earned MW Women's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.
Bratt scored a pair of goals over the weekend as Air Force opened the 2012 campaign with shutout victories over Lamar and Montana. The Brewerton, N.Y., native tallied the Falcons' second goal of Friday's 3-0 win against the Cardinals, converting her lone shot attempt on a pass from Sarah Falvey at the 43:05 mark. On Sunday, Bratt scored the game-winning goal on a free kick for the lone score in a 1-0 triumph over the Grizzlies. Working from the top of the box, she curled the ball around Montana's wall to the lower-right post in the 80th minute. The junior midfielder finished the week with four points overall.
