Jordan Bodily scored two goals including the game-winner in overtime as the Pacific women’s soccer team defeated Lewis & Clark 3-2 on Sunday, Sept. 25.
For her efforts, Bodily was selected the Northwest Conference Offensive Student-Athlete Of The Week for the week of Sept. 26.
Bodily is Pacific’s scoring leader on the season with 10 points. She skipped a low shot past the Pioneers’ goalkeeper early in the first half to put the Boxers in front 1-0.
After falling behind 2-1 at the half, the Boxers tied the match in the second half, then turned to Bodily again in overtime.
Taking a short corner kick near the edge of the 18-yard box, Bodily fired a bending shot just inside the back post for her second game-winning goal of the season and her fourth career game-winner.
An Honorable Mention All-NWC selection in 2010 after scoring eight points, Bodily has already exceeded that total in leading the Boxers to a 5-2-1 record, their best start to a season since 2003.
She becomes the first Boxer to win Offensive Player Of The Week honors since Laura Hill in the first week of the 2006 season.
The Boxers have had one defensive honoree each of the last four seasons, including goalkeeper Brittany Hartmann (Jr., Portland, Ore.) each of the last two years.
The Student-Athlete Of The Week awards are voted on by the conference sports information directors in the Division III Northwest Conference.
Bodily leads the Boxers in offensive categories, with several accomplishments including four goals, two assists, 28 shots and 19 shots on goal.
She is tied for second in the conference in assists after leading the team with four helpers in 2010.
Bodily is tied for fourth in the NWC in shots and tied for fifth in goals and points. She has eight career goals.
Bodily is a four-year starter and two-time honorable mention all-conference selection. She is majoring in biology.
