Pasarow receives Association of Division III Independents women’s soccer Player of the Week award

OVERLAND PARK, KS -- University of California Santa Cruz senior forward Sofia Pasarow (San Pedro, Calif.) has been named the Association of Division III Independents women's soccer Player of the Week. In three road matches in Texas over a span of three days, Pasarow came off the bench to be a key contributor for the Banana Slugs as they finished the week 2-1. The senior was the catalyst for the insurance goal in UCSC's 2-0 defeat of University of Dallas on Friday, where she drove down the line and drew Dallas' goalkeeper out and was able to slot a cross into the six yard box to find onrushing freshman forward Sarah Medor. The forward concluded her week scoring the Banana Slugs lone goal against No. 2 nationally ranked Trinity University (TX) and the No. 1 ranked team in the West Region as she leveled the score at 1-1 in the 40th minute when she powered home a shot across the six yard box to find the back of the net. Trinity would go onto to secure the win, but in Pasarow's last regular season appearance as a Slug, the senior was able to convert on a nationally ranked team that had only had five goals scored on them in 19 games to that point and had logged 14 total shutouts this season.
