Clayton State’s O’Driscoll selected Peach Belt Conference “Goalkeeper of the Week” for women’s soccer
AUGUSTA, Ga. – October 18, 2011 – The Peach Belt Conference released its weekly honors for women's soccer on Tuesday, and for a second straight week, Clayton State's Laoise O'Driscoll was amongst the selections.
O'Driscoll repeated as Peach Belt Conference Goalkeeper of the Week following another stellar two games with two shutouts. She joins Armstrong Atlantic's Kristina Pascutti (Offensive Player of the Week) and Columbus State's Kansas Bayly (Defensive Player of the Week) as this week's PBC honorees. The last time Clayton State had players get honored by the Peach Belt in consecutive weeks was in 2007.
A junior from Limerick, Ireland, O'Driscoll continued her recent torrid shutout streak as she combined for one shutout in last Wednesday's 3-0 victory over Georgia Southwestern and recorded a shutout in a scoreless tie against UNC Pembroke on Saturday. Over the last five games, she has lowered her goals-against average from 1.57 to 0.99.
In addition, O'Driscoll has gone her last 512 minutes without allowing a goal. Her stellar play has the Lakers 7-5-1 overall and 3-3-1 in the Peach Belt heading into Wednesday night's home showdown against Columbus State. Clayton State has seven shutouts on the season, its most since 2007.
Clayton State plays host to Columbus State on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Laker Field.
