November 1, 2011
HIGH POINT, N.C. - Pfeiffer University’s Alyssa Wombwell has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas women’s soccer Player of the Week during week number nine in the 2011 season. The senior from Grand Blanc, MI put together a solid final week of the regular season with a goal and three assists in a 1-1 week for Lady Falcon soccer.
Playing in her final two collegiate home games, Wombwell started the week with a goal and two assists against North Greenville in a 6-0 clean sheet; she scored the third goal before assisting on goals four and five. On Saturday's Senior Day vs. Queens University of Charlotte, Wombwell contributed to the only goal for Pfeiffer with a spot on pass from midfield to a streaking Rachael Shapelow downfield through the Royals defense to score the equalizer. In the week, Wombwell notched another goal and five more points adding to her own school records broken in the last two weeks.
Wombwell leads the team in all three offensive categories. Pfeiffer is now 9-9-1 overall heading into Thursday's tournament semifinals at Belmont Abbey.
