9.11.13 WOMEN'S SOCCER: Jalbert Named GLIAC Offensive Athlete of the Week
Women's Soccer, 2013-09-11
(BAY CITY, Mich.) – Lea Jalbert (R-Fr., 5-5, Repentigny, Quebec, Canada/Felix-Leclerc) started her college career about as well as anyone could ask for with four goals in her first two games. For her efforts, she has been named the first GLIAC Women’s Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week of the 2013 season.
In her first collegiate game, Jalbert scored her first goal on a breakaway just over six minutes into the game against St. Thomas Aquinas (N.Y.) to give Walsh a 1-0 lead. She then put the game out of reach with two more goals in the 68th and 72nd minutes to complete the hat trick and set up the final 4-0 score. On Sunday, Walsh and West Virginia Wesleyan, a second round NCAA playoff team in 2012 and favorites to win the Mountain East Conference championship, appeared to be destined for overtime tied at 0-0 before Jalbert scored in the 79th minute. She was credited with the game winning goals in both games.
Jalbert and the Cavaliers will back in action tomorrow night as they host arch rival Malone at Milazzo Field. Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
