ORU women's soccer player Mary-Kate Halsmer was named College Sports Madness Southland Conference player of the week on Monday.

Halsmer matched her 2011 total by scoring two goals over the weekend to lead the Golden Eagles to two wins.

In Sunday's matchup at Creighton, the junior Jenks native was the hero, scoring the game winning goal in the double overtime to lead ORU to a 1-0 win. In the first game of the weekend on Friday, Halsmer added the game winner to break a scoreless tie against Nebraska-Omaha in the 50th minute. The Golden Eagles won 2-0.

The Golden Eagles (6-3-1) look to continue their six match streak without a loss on Sunday at 1 p.m. as they begin conference action at Stephen F. Austin.
