Schmidt entered the contest with two goals scored on the season and now has 27 career goals despite moving to the forward position for the first time in her competitive soccer playing career midway through her freshman season.

The games this year really point out how many scoring options the Pilots have. Opponents are going to have a hard time shutting them down, whether is it Eli, Danielle, Sophie, or Michelle. Stop one or two and there are more to take up the slack. I think we will see more scoring from Kendra as the season goes on... Am looking forward to this Friday's match already!!!

For the Soccer America Women's Team of the Week ...

Smart move, with only 2 mids and 2 defenders, he'll need them both.

Congrats Sophie!

From the UP:

Schmidt Earns National Player of the Week Honors

University of Portland junior forward Sophie Schmidt was named the Soccer America National Player of the Week on Tuesday after scoring four goals in the Pilotsí 5-1 win over Columbia on Sunday. Schmidt earned West Coast Conference Player of the Week and TopDrawerSoccer.com national team of the week honors as well.

Portland improved to 5-0-0 on the season after claiming the Husky/Nike Invitational title with victories over then-No. 23 Colorado College (2-0) and Columbia. Schmidt became the 13th player in school history to score at least four goals in a game in Portlandís win against Columbia.

She entered the contest with two goals scored on the season and now has 27 career goals despite moving to the forward position for the first time in her competitive soccer playing career midway through her freshman season. Schmidt is four goals away from cracking Portlandís career top 10 list and has 70 points in 40 games, the seventh best points per game average in UP history.



Schmidt leads the Pilots early this season with six goals and 14 points. Last year, the Abbotsford, B.C. native led the WCC in scoring during league games with 21 points (9g, 3a) in seven matches.

Portland looks to extend its season-opening winning streak this weekend as host of the Nike Portland Invitational at the Clive Charles Soccer Complex. Participating teams include Illinois, Miami (FL) and Washington. The tournament begins Friday at 4:30 with Washington vs. Miami, followed by the Pilots and Fighting Illini at 7 p.m. Sundayís doubleheader starts at noon and the tournament concludes with Portland vs. Miami at 2:30 p.m.
