UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Following a pair of victories last weekend in Morgantown, W.Va., Elizabeth Ball (Richmond, Va.) Alina Ortega Jurado (Waldgirmes, Germany) garnered weekly honors from TopDrawerSoccer. The duo were named to the TopDrawerSoccer Team of the Week for the week of Nov. 13-19. Along with Team of the Week honors, Ball was named the TopDrawerSoccer Player of the Week.

Last weekend, No. 10 Penn State topped No. 24 Wake Forest, 2-0, before defeating the No. 7 West Virginia Mountaineers, 3-1, in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Ball played the full 90 minutes in each contest and tallied a career-best three points on one goal and one assist in Penn State’s 3-1 victory over West Virginia.

For Ortega Jurado, she netted a goal in back-to-back contests, including the go-ahead goal against Wake Forest and the game-tying goal against West Virginia.

The No. 10 and third-seeded Nittany Lions now head to No. 1 and top-seeded Stanford on Friday, Nov. 24, for the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Tournament. The match is slated for a 5 p.m. (EST) start at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.
