Boxscore: Purdue 4, Miami 3 (OT)
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- For her multi-goal effort and starring role in the overtime victory at Miami (Ohio) Sunday, Jordan Pawlik of Purdue women's soccer has garnered a pair weekly honors from national websites.
Pawlik was recognized as the Big Ten Player of the Week by CollegeSportsMadness.com. She was also selected to CollegeSoccer360.com's Primetime Performers list.
Pawlik had two goals and an assist in the Boilermakers' first road win in nearly a year. She connected on a penalty kick in the 62nd minute, one of three equalizers scored by Purdue in the back-and-forth affair. In the 102nd minute, she scored her 12th career goal as a Boiler to ignite an overtime victory celebration. The senior joined Alex Hairston and Taylor Niewoit as active Purdue players with overtime goals on their college résumés.
The Fort Wayne native moved from outside back to forward in the first half Sunday at Miami after Maddy Williams was sidelined by an ankle injury again. Pawlik also setup Hadley Stuart's equalizer in the 83rd minute that sent the game to overtime.
While it was Pawlik's third multi-goal game in her season and a half with the program, she became only the second player in program history to have a multi-goal effort and overtime game-winner in the same match. Jessica Baumhoff also accomplished the feat in a September 2002 OT victory at Oakland, a game that also ended with a 4-3 final.
Friday, Pawlik was a part of defensive effort that limited IPFW to four shots while shutting out the Mastodons in a 2-0 win.
