Watch Them Now

17 Lindsay Taylor
Stanford (Division I)

Key Notes: Taylor was named the Pac-12 Conference Player of the Week for her play in the Cardinal's weekend victories against No. 8 Notre Dame and No. 11 UC Irvine. Taylor led a late comeback against Notre Dame by scoring the tying goal and assisting on the winner -- both in the final 10 minutes -- to lead Stanford to a 2-1 victory in a rematch of last year's NCAA championship final. Taylor is eighth on Stanford's all-time goal-scoring list with 39.

Keep Your Eyes on This

Division I: With 37 career shutouts, Boston College goalkeeper Jillian Mastroianni is now the all-time ACC leader. Virginia's Chantel Jones is right behind with 36.

• There are only two schools left in Division I which have not allowed a goal this season -- both from the Philadelphia area. La Salle is 4-0-1, while Penn is 4-0-0.

Division II: Florida Tech senior goalkeeper Mist Eliasdottir led the Panthers to three wins last weekend, including a 3-0 shutout against Catawba. She posted a 0.67 goals against average and made 11 saves, earning her Sunshine State Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors and helping the Panthers grab the No. 1 spot in the latest NSCAA Coaches' Poll.

• Division III: William Smith moved up one spot to No. 2 in this week's NSCAA Coaches' Poll. The Herons improved to 4-0-1 by tying No. 1 Messiah and defeating Cortland last weekend. The Herons played through two overtime periods to a scoreless tie with top-ranked Messiah in the first game of the 2011 Heron Cup on Saturday. The Falcons had scored at least one goal in their previous 70 matches.
