BEMIDJI -- Bemidji State soccer team forward Allyson Smith has been named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Offensive Player of the Week. This marks the first weekly individual award in the sophomore’s career and the third straight week the Beavers have had an individual recognized by the league.

Smith led the Beavers to a 2-0-0 weekend in NSIC play, bagging three of the Beavers’ seven goals. She recorded her second multi-goal match of the season in a 5-1 victory over Upper Iowa Friday before getting the Beavers on the board in a 2-0 win at Winona State Sunday.

Smith netted the deciding goal in each match and now leads the team with three game-winning goals. In all, she played 112 of 180 minutes while logging eight shots and five shots on goal.

The sophomore is fifth in the league in points (12) and goals (5) and leads the NSIC in game-winners (3).

Smith was joined by Augustana defender Rebekah Thoresen, who won Defensive Player of the Week, and goalkeeper Claudia Pueschner, who earned Goalkeeper of the Week.
