Three Cal women’s soccer players won honors for their recent play this week, including freshman Kacy Hornor’s first career award.
Hornor was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week for Sept. 17-23. Hornor, from San Francisco, posted three goals and an assist on the weekend, helping the Golden Bears to a pair of 3-1 road victories over UNLV and San Diego State. Against the Rebels Sept. 21, Hornor tallied two goals, including her first collegiate goal and the game-winner. She earned her first collegiate start against the Aztecs, responding with the game-winning goal and an assist on Cal’s final goal. Hornor is third on the team with nine points (3 goals, 3 assists).
Junior forward Laura Schott and sophomore midfielder Kim Yokers were also honored this week. Both players were named to the Soccer America Team of the Week for their play during the week of Sept. 17-23, and Yokers was named to Soccer Buzz’s National Elite Team of the Week for her contributions in each of the Golden Bears’ three wins.
Schott netted the game-winning goal in the 83rd minute to beat previously unbeaten and third-ranked Santa Clara, 2-1. She also scored twice and had an assist in the final 10 minutes to beat San Diego State, 3-1. Schott now leads the team with 14 points on six goals and two assists.
Yokers dished off two assists in the 2-1 upset of the Broncos. She also scored a goal to clinch the 3-1 win over UNLV and had an assist on an insurance goal in the 3-1 victory over San Diego State. She has seven points (1 goal, 5 assists) this season and is tied for the Pac-10 lead for assists.
This marks Schott’s second and Yokers first career selection to the Soccer America Team of the Week.
The Golden Bears (6-1-0) return home to face Fresno State Sept. 28 at Edwards Stadium.
