Hailie Mace – UCLA

Hailie Mace made a great run down the middle of the field in the first minute of the second half against Pepperdine, where she was on the receiving end of a great setup from Viviana Villacorta.

Darian Powell – Marquette

Darian Powell sent a flying header into the net, which proved to be the game-winner in a 2-1 victory against Rhode Island.

Sam Tran – Stanford

Stanford has been no stranger to our weekly Best Goals of the Week post. The Cardinal have outscored their opponents 26-0 in their last four matches. In Stanford's 7-0 win against Yale, Sam Tran beat the Bulldogs' keeper with a header towards the near post.

Shannon Horgan – Clemson

Clemson suffered a 4-2 defeat to Notre Dame, but Shannon Horgan's goal was one of the few bright spots for the Tigers. She sent in a shot from 35 yards out for Clemson's first goal of the game.

Miranda Nild – California

The Bears won their fourth straight game after a 2-0 win against Oklahoma. She settled a cross with one touch, made a move to her right, then blasted a shot past the keeper.
