Cal’s Sabo honored for weekend performance

Thursday September 06, 2001

Cal forward Kyla Sabo was named to Soccer Buzz’s first-ever National Elite Team of the Week on Tuesday. 

Sabo, a senior, scored three goals and had an assist in Cal’s first two games last weekend at the California Invitational. 

Sabo was one of four Bears to score a goal in Friday’s 4-0 win over Pacific, then scored two goals and had an assist in her team’s 4-2 comeback win over No. 24 Michigan. Sabo scored the game-winner in the second half with a header off of a corner kick, and assisted on the final goal of the game. 

Sabo leads the team with seven points after the first weekend of play. The Fremont product scored six goals last season and led the team with eight assists. 

Soccer Buzz is a website covering women’s college soccer. Each week during the season, Buzz selects a team of elite players based on performances during games that week.
