Lady Cats sweep MEC weekly soccer awards

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. — West Virginia Wesleyan’s Marissa Zetty is the Mountain East Conference Offensive Player of the Week, while teammate Chelsea Hubner has been recognized as the Defensive Player of the Week.

Zetty, a junior from Grindstone, Pa., helped the Bobcats to a pair of wins last week with two goals out of the midfield. She tacked on the game’s final goal in a 4-1 win over South Division rival Concord, and then provided the insurance goal in a 2-0 win over Urbana. With the wins, the Bobcats secured the MEC South Division title.

Hubner, a junior from Plum, Pa., helped WVWC post a pair of wins in last week’s games. Splitting time with Ashlee Schumacher, Hubner got the start and made five saves and kept Concord off the board in the first half. She then played the final 45 minutes and did not allow a goal to complete a shutout of Urbana.
