CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performers of the Week #7  (9/27-10/3/10)

FSU goalkeeper Kelsey Wys Named Primetime Player of the Week.

Florida State sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Wys (Coral Springs, Fla.) has been named the Primetime Player of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com (for games during Sept. 27-Oct. 3). She is joined by 14 other players in comprising the CS360 week-7 Primetime Performers of the Week (full list at bottom of this release).

Wys – who has three years of eligibility remaining after the 2010 season (she took a redshirt season in '09) – had an impressive weekend while facing two key rivals in the Atlantic Coast Conference: a 1-0 overtime win over Wake Forest and a 3-1 victory over Duke (WFU was #25 in the CS360 Composite National Rankings, while Duke was #22). Wys totaled 18 saves spanning the two games, while the only goal she allowed came on an unfortunate own-goal early in the Duke game (Wys then closed that game by stopping 14 consecutive shots-on-goal, with FSU not stretching to the 3-1 cushion until the 70th minute). 

The strong season-long play of Wys (0.63 goals-against avg.; .881 save pct.) has helped Florida State overcome the preseason loss to injury of star forwards Jessica Price and Tiffany McCarty – who easily comprised the top returning offensive duo in the nation (they each had 16-plus goals in 2009 ... CLICK HERE for CS360's exclusive coverage of the top scoring duos from the '09 season). With Wys and the Seminoles defense yielding only seven goals in 11 games this season, the re-worked offensive attack has been able to develop without the pressure of needing to provide higher goal totals.

Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):
• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a preseason conference favorite), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.
• Involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.
