|Monmouth College Soccer Player Named Performer of the Week
|Monmouth College's Katie Fluegel (Rockton, Ill./Hononegah) scored the game-tying goal in the Fighting Scots' 1-1 double-overtime tie with Grinnell in the Scots' conference opener and was named the Midwest Conference Offensive Performer of the Week in women's soccer.
Fluegel's lone goal tied the game with perennial power Grinnell in Monmouth's conference opener on Saturday. Monmouth had never beaten or tied Grinnell in 18 previous matches, but Fluegel's goal in the 61st minute changed all that. She made the most of her opportunity, scoring on her only shot of the match. Fluegel has taken just six shots all season and has put four of them on goal.
