After hat trick, Nouanesengsy named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week

From IDS Reports

For the first time since 2009, an IU women’s soccer player has been selected as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.

Junior midfielder Lisa Nouanesengsy received this honor following two IU victories last weekend.

Nouanesengsy scored four goals on nine shots on goal, leading the Hoosiers to victories against Arkanasas State (3-0) and Ohio (4-2).

After two goals in the first eight minutes of the match against Arkansas State, a third in the 60th minute completed her hat trick and propelled her into IU women’s soccer history, as she is the only player to record two hat tricks in a career.

Nounanesengsy’s first hat trick came against Butler nearly a year ago, when she recorded the first three goals of her IU career in a 6-1 victory against the Bulldogs.

Her hat tricks were the seventh and eighth in IU women’s soccer history.

This is the first weekly award Nouanesengsy has earned in her time at IU.

The team will continue its season 7:30 p.m. Friday at Bill Armstrong Stadium when it faces South Florida and places their 2-0 record on the line.
