CS360 WEEK-10 PRIMETIME PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Texas A&M freshman 'keeper Jordan Day

Jordan Day A 250

Texas A&M freshman goalkeeper Jordan Day (Gilbert, Ariz.) leads the way among the latest edition of the CS360 Primetime Performers of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by for games during the week of Oct. 17-23, 2011.  Day (pictured, at right) – the week-10 CS360 Primetime Player of the Week – totaled 14 saves spanning 200 shutout minutes during the past week, highlighted by a scoreless draw versus unbeaten Oklahoma State (cs360 #3). The rookie 'keeper made eight saves in that showdown while displaying her strong play in the air throughout the game, particularly while defensing 10 corner kicks from the dangerous Cowgirls offense.

The pressure-packed tie kept the Aggies in the running for the Big 12 regular-season title, one point behind the Cowgirls. Earlier in the week, Day stopped all six shots she faced in a 3-0 win over Oklahoma (12 total shots, 3 corners). Her busy week included facing a pair of rivals that uncorked 32 total shots (14 on-goal, all saved) and had 13 corner-kick chances. Day – who leads the Big 12 in conference save pct. (.941) and is second with a 0.32 conference goals-against  avg. – is a product of Basha High School, the San Tan Legacy club and most recently the elite Sereno Soccer club program.

Player info. on all 13 honorees is included below, with this page also including action photos and headshots (right-sidebar) for each player. 

... Selection for the Division I women's CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or in a game involving a preseason conference favorite/leader), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification/participation.

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.

• Exhibited strong leadership and/or involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, momentum-shifting play, all-around performance, team spirit, 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 and/or against a traditional rival.
