Eclipse Select alumni: W. Michigan's Brittney Pavlica earns MAC honor
CHICAGO -- Eclipse Select Soccer Club alumna and junior forward Brittney Pavlica (Kenosha, Wis./Mary Bradford High School) netted a pair of game-winning goals and was named Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Week. Pavlica shares this week's honor with Miami Ohio forward Katy Dolesh.
On Friday, Pavlica scored the lone goal during the Broncos' 1-0 victory over Central Michigan, handing the Chippewas their first MAC loss of the season. In the 33rd minute, Pavlica took advantage of a misplayed free kick by Central Michigan, got to the ball and flicked it over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net. On Saturday, Pavlica netted the game-winner with only 1:52 remaining in double overtime to edge Eastern Michigan, 1-0.
Pavlica has four goals on the season, and all four happen to be game-winning tallies.
