Brentwood, TN – Junior goalkeeper Lindsey Todd , of Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team, was named Ohio Valley Conference Co-Goalkeeper of the Week, putting a bow on what was a breakout season.
The award is Todd’s second of her career after winning on October 27th last season.
Todd began the season splitting minutes with freshman Mary Parker Powell , but claimed the starting spot, September 18th against Chattanooga, before starting every OVC match on the schedule.
In conference play with Todd between the posts, the Governors allowed just six goals, tying for the second-lowest total among league competitors.
Austin Peay finished the season with three consecutive shutouts, including holding OVC regular season champions Murray State to no goals, Thursday. Todd made four saves in the contest, including a highlight-reel save on Harriet Withers in the second half.
Statistically, Todd posted impressive numbers, including a 0.68 goals against average which ranked second in the OVC and 29th nationally. In addition, the Brentwood native finished with an 8-2-4 record and seven shutouts.
Todd’s final numbers put her among the premier single-season performances in program history – her goals against average and shutout totals rank second all-time. She also moved up the career charts, up to a tie for second in overall shutouts with 11.
Murray State’s Alex Steigerwald joined Todd as Co-Goalkeeper of the Week. SEMO’s Esmie Gonzales and SIUE’s Caroline Hoefert were Co-Offensive Players of the Week, while Belmont’s Meg Howard and SIUE’s Jorie Clawson shared Co-Defensive Players of the Week.
