Tulsa's Davidson Earns WAC Women's Soccer Honor
Oct. 16, 2000
Tulsa, Oklahoma - Tulsa midfielder Julie Davidson has been named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week for sparking the offensive efforts in the team's conference victories at home last weekend.
Davidson, a senior from St. Charles, Mo., keyed the offensive attack with two assists and a game-winner to boost the Golden Hurricane into second place in the WAC standings with a 4-2 mark, 9-5-1 overall.
Despite building a two-goal cushion, Hawai'i netted consecutive goals to tie the game with 18 minutes remaining in regulation. With three minutes to play, Davidson took control, nailing a 30-yard free kick over the head of Wahine goalkeeper, Demarre Sanchez, for her fourth-career game winner. The score also marked the fourth time in two years that Davidson had scored a game-winning goal off either a free kick or a corner kick.
Against Nevada on Oct. 15, Davidson helped create the game's first two goals, as Tulsa shutout down the Wolf Pack 3-0. Her feed set up teammate Melissa McCormick, who then beat the keeper on a one-on-one for the game winner. Davidson's well-placed corner kick was headed in by Emily Trost for the insurance goal. The two assists moved the veteran into ninth-place among the school's all-time assist leaders.
Davidson is currently third on the team in goals (5) and points (14), and is second in assists (4) with two games remaining before the WAC Championship commences.
