WOMEN’S PLAYER OF THE WEEK
UCLA’s Zakiya Bywaters
UCLA senior forward Zakiya Bywaters has been named the LA Soccer News Women’s College Player of the Week for the week ending November 18.
Bywaters scored twice to lead the Bruins to a 3-0 win over San Diego State in the third round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday afternoon.
Bywaters, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, put UCLA ahead early, taking a pass from Rosie White on the left and firing to the lower left corner from 10 yards out past Aztec goalkeeper Rachel Boaz in the seventh minute. Bywaters struck again in the 13th, this time scoring from the right side of the field to the far post for her 15th goal of the year. Sarah Killion was credited with the assist on the play.
