Grisham Named C-USA Co-Offensive Player of the Week

Sept. 8, 2014

DENTON - The North Texas and Rice soccer teams both defeated Vanderbilt this past weekend, and both squads were rewarded with player of the week honors. North Texas junior midfielder Molly Grisham was named Conference USA Co-Offensive Player of the Week for her game-winning goal in the Mean Green's 1-0 win against Vanderbilt on Sunday afternoon.

Grisham one-timed a ball, won by teammate Kaylah Hunter, from right outside the 18-yard box. The ball curled and went into the upper 90 of the Vanderbilt goal in the 68th minute of the game. The goal was Grisham's only shot of the game.

"I'm happy for Molly receiving player of the week honors," said North Texas head coach John Hedlund. "She's been a huge plus for us coming off the bench. Molly gives us that spark we need and it was so evident against Vanderbilt with the winning goal and her being able to contain their best midfielder throughout the match."

Grisham now has two goals in five games this season and three in her career. She has come off the bench in all five matches. Grisham shared the honor with Rice true freshman Nia Stallings who scored the Owls' game-winning goal less-than a minute into overtime against the Commodores.

North Texas faces nationally-ranked Oklahoma on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Mean Green Soccer Complex.
