Watch Them Now

16 Laura Weinberg

Key Notes: Weinberg was named the NSCAA National Player of the Week and to the Soccer America Team of the Week. She helped lead sixth-ranked Duke to victories against then-No. 3 Wake Forest and then-15th-ranked Maryland. At Wake Forest, Weinberg notched two second-half goals and snapped Demon Deacon goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe’s scoreless streak at 515:46, which was the second-longest streak in school history. The Blue Devils now own a school-record seven ACC wins on the season and are in sole possession of first place.
