Tucker Tabbed MEC Offensive Player of Week

BRIDGEPORT — West Virginia Wesleyan’s Makatlyn Tucker is the Mountain East Conference Offensive Player of the Week, while Concord’s Leigh Wightman is league’s Defensive Player of the Week.

Tucker, a freshman from Salem, W.Va., provided a brace in WVWC’s only game last week — a 2-0 win over Charleston. She provided the first goal of her collegiate career in the 61st minute to break a scoreless tie, and then added another insurance goal less than a minute later to propel the Bobcats to the conference victory.

Wightman, a freshman from Woodley, England, had two assists off the back line last week to help Concord notch a win and a draw. After helping the squad to a 1-1 draw on the road at Wingate, she stepped forward to provide two assists and helped the Mountain Lions to a shutout win over Shepherd.
