Aug. 23, 2010

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Senior midfielder Erica Seidman has been named the Big West Offensive Player of the Week and Athlete of the Week after scoring the game-winning goals in a pair of Gaucho wins last weekend.

On Friday night, Seidman scored early in the first half of UCSB's 2-0 win over Cal State Northridge. She took a pass from Kylie McDonald right in front of the goal and pounded a shot past the goalkeeper. On Sunday, she scored the Gauchos' first goal in the second half of their 2-0 win over Cal State Bakersfield.

Seidman entered the year with one goal in her first three seasons.

The Gauchos return to action on Friday, Aug. 27 when they host Saint Joseph's in a 5:00 p.m. match at Meredith Field at Harder Stadium. The UCSB women's contest will be followed by a men's soccer exhibition game against the Mexican U-20 National Team.
