COLUMBIA, Mo. – Stephens College junior midfielder Kenzie Andrade was tabbed as an American Midwest Conference (AMC) Soccer Player of the Week after leading the Stars to their first program victory last Tuesday. Andrade, who attended Rock Bridge High School, notched a team-record five points in the Stars’ 4-3 milestone victory over Faith Baptist Bible College.
The AMC Offensive Player of the Week honor marks the first conference award for the Stephens College soccer program.
In the early going, Andrade knocked in a goal from just inside the box to give the Stars a 2-0 advantage over FBBC. Less than a minute and a half later, Andrade was credited with an assist on Rose Baka’s goal to increase the Stephens’ lead to 3-0.
Faith Baptist Bible College made a run of its own with three straight goals, including an equalizer in the 76th minute. Showing poise and experience, Andrade quickly answered with the game-winner and her second goal of the match in the 78th minute. Her multi-goal performance is another first for the Stephens College soccer program.
