ECLIPSE SELECT ALUMNI: FOSTER PACING REBELS
Ole Miss freshman leads side with nine goals in eight games
CHICAGO (Sept. 14, 2017) – Eclipse Select Soccer Club alumna and Ole Miss freshman Channing Foster (Murray, Ky.) is off to an impressive start for the Rebels, already putting her name on notice before Southeastern Conference play has even started.
Foster is scoring at a clip of more than a goal per game with nine tallies in eight matches thus far this season. This past weekend, she netted a first-half score to lead Ole Miss to a 1-0 victory at Memphis on Sunday. Considering all of her goal-scoring, the tally against Memphis happened to be her first game-winner of the season.
Among SEC players, Foster leads the pack with her nine tallies.
Foster was a member of Eclipse Select’s 2014 ECNL National Championship-winning side at the U-16 age group.
Havelka-Vanderplow nets brace for Lewis: Lewis freshman Cali Havelka-Vanderplow (Hinsdale, Ill.) will certainly remember her first collegiate goal — especially since she scored twice in one match.
Havelka-Vanderplow recorded a brace to lead the Flyers to a 2-1 victory against Tiffin last Monday (Sept. 4) in Tiffin, Ohio. It also marked the first win of the 2017 campaign for Lewis, a Division II program that competes in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.
Sprecher nabs Big East Freshman honors again: Marquette freshman forward Kylie Sprecher (Menomonee Falls, Wis.) has earned Big East Freshman of the Week for a second straight week. She tallied a goal and assist this past weekend to lift the Golden Eagles to a pair of victories. Sprecher netted Friday’s lone goal for a 1-0 victory against Boston University and followed with an assist on Darian Powell’s winner at Rhode Island on Sunday.
Sprecher is tied for second on Marquette’s roster with seven points (two goals, three assists) as the Golden Eagles have now won seven consecutive matches.
Brockmeier, LSU defense remain stout: LSU junior goalkeeper Caroline Brockmeier (Tallahassee, Fla.) is anchoring a solid Tigers defense thus far in 2017. Brockmeier posted a pair of saves for her fifth clean sheet during their 1-0 victory against Liberty, the defending Big South Conference champion, on Sunday.
She has allowed only one goal in six matches to improve to 6-0-0.
Elsewhere, K-State junior defender Megan Kalkofen (Wheaton, Ill.) scored her first collegiate goal during a 3-2 loss to Creighton on Sunday in Manhattan, Kan. Her second-half equalizer came in the 53rd minute on a header across the mouth of the goal. This is Kalkofen’s second season with K-State after originally representing Wisconsin in 2015.
