UCF women’s soccer forward Jennifer Martin started the week off strong for the No. 12 Knights when she claimed Conference USA’s first Offensive Player of the Week award of the 2012 season Monday. She was also pinned as College Sports Madness’ C-USA Player of the Week. This marks the first accolades of Martin’s career.
The Naples native tallied two goals over the opening weekend as UCF started off its season 2-0 for the first time since 2003.
In Friday’s season opener, she scored the first goal of the game by capitalizing off a penalty kick. The Knights defeated USF, 3-1, on the road and earned their seventh-straight win over their intrastate rival. Martin then scored the second goal in UCF’s 4-0 win at reigning Atlantic Sun champion Florida Gulf Coast on Sunday.
She started both games, clocking 128 minutes over the weekend, and was the only UCF player to score in both matches.
The Knights have a jam-packed weekend approaching as they hold their home opener Friday against No. 4 Florida State at 7 p.m. before welcoming Miami on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Season tickets are available for UCF’s 11 home games, beginning at $30. This year’s purchase comes with a complimentary soccer scarf to wear to the games. To purchase, call (407) UCF-1000 or visit UCFAthletics.com.
