Women Sweep Weekly Southland Soccer Awards

Posted: Updated:
Frisco, Texas -

After taking the Southland Conference defensive and goalkeeper of the week awards the previous two weeks, Oral Roberts adds the offensive award to the mix to sweep the weekly honors, the conference office announced Tuesday.

Highlighted by goalkeeper Helen Erb bringing home the award for the fourth consecutive week, senior Lauren Parks was named top defender for the second time this season and Mary-Kate Halsmer rode a pair of game-winning goals to the offensive honor.

Being honored by the conference SID's was the second award received by Halsmer, a native of Jenks, after being named the top Southland player by College Sports Madness on Monday. The junior was the hero in Sunday's 1-0 double-overtime victory against Creighton with a goal just two days after breaking a scoreless tie at Nebraska-Omaha on Friday.

The two goals Halsmer put on the board over the weekend matched her total for the 2011 season. Halsmer has scored three goals and added an assist this season.

Tuesday's announcement marks the fourth consecutive week Erb has been named the goalkeeper of the week. Playing for her hometown team, Erb is the conference leader with 55 saves, 5.5 saves per game and a save percentage of .902.

She knocked down a total of nine saves in route to her fifth and sixth shutouts, which is also a conference high.

Parks, a native of Edmond, played a key role on the defensive side of the ball in the two victories in Omaha.

She anchored a Golden Eagles defense that allowed just seven shots to Nebraska-Omaha, while getting a shot off in the battle against Creighton.

This is the second time this season Parks has been named defensive player of the week, earning the award on Sept. 10.

The Golden Eagles (6-3-2) are scheduled to take part in its first ever conference contest on Sunday at Stephen F. Austin, kicking off at 1 p.m. The Ladyjacks were picked by both the conference coaches and SID's to finish atop the standings at the end of the season.
