For the third time this season an East Texas Baptist University women’s soccer player has been named the American Southwest Conference “Player of the Week” for their play in Natalie Torres. Torres collected a hat trick on Saturday to defeat McMurry, 4-2.
Torres scored goals in the 2nd, 34th, and 52nd minutes of the match all unassisted. Her first goal was at the 1:01 mark to set the tone for the match. After McMurry tied the match at one in the 9th minute, Torres struck again in the 34th minute for a 2-1 advantage.
In the second half, McMurry was within one, 3-2, scoring in the 52nd minute but Torres added the insurance goal in the 76th minute for the win. This was the second time in her career to have a hat trick as she posted three goals in 2012 vs. the University of the Ozarks.
ETBU is now 4-2 overall and will next play on October 3rd in Marshall against Mary Hardin-Baylor.
