Sophomore goalkeeper Ahsha Earwood of Pomona-Pitzer is this week’s SCIAC Female Athlete of the Week (all sports).
She helped the Sagehens to a 4-0 finish at the Convergence Tournament, two of those wins coming in overtime. She allowed only five goals per game over the four matches, including nine saves in an 11-3 win over Fresno Pacific and 11 in a 9-8 overtime win over No. 19 UC San Diego on Friday, then 11 more in a 7-5 overtime win over George Washington and 13 in a 10-4 win over CSU Monterey Bay on Saturday.
Earwood did not allow a goal in either overtime (12 total minutes), and broke up a pass to an open player in front of the net on the final possession of the game by UC San Diego. That save helped the Sagehens hold on for their first-ever win over the Tritons, who were 12-0 in the series all-time, including a win in an NCAA Play-In match last year, and a second round NCAA Tournament game in 2013.
