NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS

November 22, 2016
WOMEN'S COLLEGE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Northwestern Wildcats' junior Kassidy Gorman


The Northwestern Wildcats finished tied for first place in the Big Ten Conference standings and advanced to the Round of 16 in the NCAA Women’s Championship mostly thanks to strong defending. The Wildcats had the best defensive record in NCAA Division 1, surrendering seven goals and recording 17 shutouts in 23 games.

And junior Kassidy Gorman, the Chicagoland Soccer News Women's Player of the Week for the week ending Nov. 20, played a major part in the Wildcats’ success. Gorman’s defending and her role in the Wildcats’ possession game helped the team to its best finish since 1998, Northwestern’s only other appearance in the NCAA tournament. Gorman’s finishing ability also helped compensate for the loss of forward Addie Steiner, who transferred to Hawaii, and Brenna Lovera, who sustained a season-ending knee injury after scoring six goals in the first 10 games. Gorman scored her sixth goal of the season in Northwestern’s 1-0 win over SIU-Edwardsville in the second round of the NCAA tournament Friday, before the Wildcats were eliminated with a 1-0 loss to Duke Sunday.
