Freshman Kira Nemeth was named the Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for her performance in Westmont’s 1-0 second overtime victory over Menlo last Friday. Nemeth scored the game winning goal to advance the Warriors to the semifinals of the GSAC Tournament.

The game was scoreless throughout regulation play and the first overtime period; and then Nemeth entered the game for the first time at the start of the second overtime period and scored within 22 seconds of play.

The goal began when freshman Maddi Berthoud beat a defender down the right sideline and crossed the ball towards Nemeth at the top of the six yard box. With great composure, Nemeth settled the ball and slotted it into the lower right side of the goal. This was Nemeth’s second goal of the season.

Tenth ranked Westmont Women’s Soccer currently has an overall record of 15-2-2 and a GSAC record of 7-2. The Warriors will play #8 Biola (14-0-2, 8-0-2 GSAC) in the semifinal round of the GSAC Tournament on Thursday November 10 at 5:00 p.m.
