Elise Krieghoff, who tied a Cal Poly women’s soccer team record with five goals in a single game, was named the Big West Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.
The junior’s five-goal performance in Friday’s 6-1 win over Fresno State was the most by a Division I player since Georgetown’s Daphne Corboz tallied five in 2012. It also tied Wendy Jones’ five goals against Vanguard in 1993 for most in Mustangs history.
Krieghoff had the third hat trick of her career by halftime, and now has 40 total goals — five off the team record.
She also recorded a pair of shots in Sunday’s 2-0 loss against No. 4 Stanford.
Never miss a local story.
The Mustangs host Saint Mary’s at 5 p.m. on Friday at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.
