Schott again repeats as Defensive Player of the Week

For the third consecutive week, Utah Valley University goalkeeper Mallory Schott has been named the Great West Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The senior from Vancouver, Washington, continued to hold up the back line for Utah Valley despite a 0-2 week for the Wolverines at the Idaho State Classic. Schott collected six saves in a 1-0 loss against Wyoming and then collected eight saves in the 2-1 loss to UC Davis.

Schott kept the Wolverines in both games despite being out shot 18-6, while playing all 180 minutes in the net and collecting a .824 saves percentage.

South Dakota’s Sarah Halbach earned the Offensive Player of the Week.

UVU will travel to Flagstaff, Arizona, to face New Mexico on Friday and Northern Arizona on Sunday before returning home to host Idaho on Friday, Oct. 3.
