Wildcats Chandler, L’Hommedieu Named A-10 Players of the Week
DAVIDSON, N.C. – After helping Davidson get off to a 2-0 start last week, the senior duo of Sabine Chandler and Sarah L’Hommedieu were named the Atlantic 10 Women’s Soccer Player and Defender of the Week, respectively, for games played from Aug. 19-25, as announced today by the league office.
The pair played big roles in helping the Wildcats score wins of 3-2 and 2-0 against Gardner-Webb and Winthrop last week.
Chandler had a career week, scoring two goals, including the game-winner at Winthrop, and adding an assist for five points. The senior from Dublin, Ohio had a personal-best three points on a goal and an assist, which helped set up the game-winning goal, in the victory against Gardner-Webb. She then netted the game-winner at Winthrop late in the second half that broke up a scoreless tie. The pair of goals and five points on the season is already a career-high for the senior.
L’Hommedieu, a Hudson, Ohio native, netted her first two wins, including the first shutout, as a Wildcat between the pipes in the two victories. A transfer from Indiana two years ago, the senior earned five saves, three of which came at Winthrop, for the week and had a 1.00 goals against average in 180 minutes. The shutout win at Winthrop was the fifth of her career after getting four at Indiana. L’Hommedieu finished the week with a .714 save percentage.
Since joining the A-10, Davidson has now collected five weekly awards with four of them being defenders of the week.
The Wildcats (2-0) return home for a 7 p.m. game next Thursday against Georgia State.
