Clayberg and Holmes Named CCC POTWWomen's Soccer: Monday October 20, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. - Sophomore Brittanique Clayberg and freshman goalkeeper Jordan Holmes were named Cascade Conference Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week today as announced by the conference office.

Clayberg (Snohomish, Wash.) had a hand in both NU victories over the weekend as she assisted on the game winner by Brittney Marshall in the 1-0 Eagle win over Warner Pacific on Friday and scored the game winning goal with 38 seconds remaining in the game on Saturday and the Eagles shut out Corban College.

"Britannique has worked so hard on speed and quickness in the off season and has excelled to another level of play," said head coach Erin Redwine. "Her touch and smart decisions give our midfield great strength. I'm proud of her maturity and leadership this year."

Holmes (Mountlake Terrace, Wash.) was in goal for the Eagles in both wins and earned the shut outs, the third and fourth for Holmes. In goal, Jordan logged 180 consecutive minutes of scoreless goalkeeping, registering three saves in the two games. Holmes is now ranked 4th in the CCC in shutouts.

"Jordan's a risk taker and is exciting to watch," commented coach Redwine. "She's working well with our back line and her confidence and excitement for the game is contagious."

Junior forward Brittney Marshall (Monroe, Wash.) is now tied for first in the CCC with Justine Pronovost of Concordia with four game winners a piece.

It was the sixth and 7th shutous for the Eagles this season and they recorded their 7th win, the most for any women's team since its inaugural season in 2006.

The Eagles play their final regular season home game this Friday evening at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila against Northwest Christian University at 5 pm.
