KANSAS CITY, Mo. - North Dakota State senior soccer player Elyse Huber has been named the United Soccer Coaches National Player of the Week. This is the second time Huber has earned the award in her career, picking up the nod on Aug. 22, 2017 while she was at Nebraska.
Huber made history on Friday night as the senior equaled a Summit League single-match record with four goals in a 4-2 win at Eastern Washington. Additionally, Huber became the first Bison to score four or more goals in a match since 2003. Her four goals were the most in the NCAA Division I era for NDSU and the most against an NCAA Division I opponent.
Earlier this week, Huber was named the Summit League Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season. Huber currently ranks second in the nation in game-winning goals with four and third in the nation with 1.13 goals per match. Her nine goals on the season are the fourth-most in the country.
