After scoring a goal in both of UT Martin’s soccer matches and recording an assist, senior forward Kendyl Wilson has been named the adidas Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Week.
Wilson is the ninth Sky-hawk to be named an OVC offensive award winner.
The Collierville native has been one of the best players in the OVC this season, leading the conference in points (11) and assists (three), while ranking second in goals (four) despite the fact she has only attempted eight shots on the year.
On Friday, Wilson tied the Arkansas State match with a goal in the 50th minute. She followed that up two days later with an assist on the first goal of UT Martin’s 5-1 victory over in-state rival Lipscomb. She then opened up the second half with a goal — the eventual game-winner — at the 49:12 mark.
Wilson now ranks in the UT Martin record book top-10 in four different career categories: assists (13, second); points (33, seventh); game-winning goals (4, seventh) and goals (10, eighth). Published in The WCP 9.13.12
