Here's a quick look at CollegeSoccer360.com's Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll in Division I women's soccer (for Oct. 10-16) – with Miami junior forward Kate Howarth (Grand Blanc, Mich.) earning the top honor, as the CS360 week-9 Primetime Player of the Week. Howarth (pictured at right) led the Hurricanes to a pair of huge wins – 3-2 vs. Boston College (cs360 #7) and 2-1 over #14 Maryland – as Miami solidified its position for qualification into the ACC Tournament while padding its NCAA Tournament resume. Howarth assisted on a pair of goals against BC (including the decisive 75th-minute score for the 3-2 final) and then scored both Miami goals versus the Terps, with her 61st-minute score providing the final 2-1 margin.
The Primetime designation recognizes players based on situational factors (such as quality of opponent, clutch play, leadership, all-around contributions, etc.) displayed in their performances during the past week, rather than solely on raw stats (full listing of criteria included below).
