STORRS, Conn. - After tallying the game winning goal in the 108th minute of play against Boston University in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, senior captain Brittany Taylor (Campbell Hall, N.Y.) has earned CollegeSoccer360 Primetime Performer of the Week honors.
Taylor’s goal was her first since Sept. 21, 2007 and won the game for the Huskies just minutes before the game would have gone to a penalty kick shootout.
The senior captain’s goal was one of determination as she took the ball and streaked up the field firing a laser shot that no one would have been able to stop for the game-winner ending Boston University’s current five-game win streak and their run into the postseason.
Taylor finished the year with five assists and her gamewinning goal and closed out her career with 18 goals and nine assists for 45 points.
