Sophomore defender Karli Potts and senior goalkeeper Megan Kneefel earned MIAA Defender of the Week and MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week, respectively. Both Potts and Kneefel were key components to the Tigers' 3-0 victory over Missouri Southern on Sunday (Oct. 20). Kneefel earns the MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week for the second week in a row.
Megan Kneefel picked up her sixth shutout win of the season for Fort Hays State in a 3-0 win over Missouri Southern. The Tiger defense in front of her was solid, allowing only four shots. Only one of those shots was on frame, which Kneefel collected for her only save of the match. Recording her 15th career shutout, Kneefel moved into a tie for second place all-time with Abbie Flax (2014-16) for career shutouts.
Potts scored the third goal for FHSU in the win over Missouri Southern. Potts was part of a Tiger team that limited the Lions to just four shots in the match. She played 38 minutes off the bench and netted her first career goal.
Washburn's Tera Lynch (Offensive Player of the Week) joins Potts and Kneefel as recipients of conference honors this week.
The Tigers are at home this weekend for a pair of matches against Rogers State and Northeastern State (Oct. 27, 1 p.m.).
