CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland senior goalkeeper Molly Wolf has been named the Corvias Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the League office Monday.
Wolf recorded a pair of double-digit save games in two contests against crosstown rivals last week, No. 16 Johns Hopkins and Towson.
In an 8-7 double-overtime win at Hopkins, Wolf turned back 10 shots, including five in the two overtime periods, to keep the Blue Jays off the board for the final 40 minutes of play. With just under two minutes remaining in double overtime, Wolf turned back a shot from Dene’ DiMartino, a Tewaaraton Award Watch List candidate, while the Greyhounds were playing a man down to set up redshirt freshman Sabrina Tabasso’s game-winning goal.
Wolf, a Baltimore, Maryland, native, followed that up with 10 saves against Towson in the Greyhounds’ home opener on Sunday to mark her third double-digit save performance in four games this season and 18th of her career.
For the week, Wolf averaged 10.0 saves per game, a 7.32 goals-against average and a .556 save percentage.
This marks Loyola’s first weekly award this season and the sixth of Wolf’s career.
The Greyhounds will return to action on Saturday when they travel to No. 8 Penn State for a 1 p.m. contest.
