Crouse led the Nittany Lions past San Diego State 3-0 last Friday with two goals off six shots. She also scored in a 2-0 win over La Salle on Sunday. She was a force on offense once again, registering four shots in that game.
Including the three goals this past weekend, Crouse’s scoring tally is up to six. She has scored a goal in each of her last three games — all wins — and four of the last five games.
This is the second time Crouse has been awarded Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week in her career. The last time came in mid-September of the previous season after she scored a goal and an assist in a 2-0 road victory over No. 2 Stanford.
This is the second time this season a Penn State women’s soccer player was honored by the Big Ten with a Player of the Week award. Laura Freigang was named Freshman of the Week during the opening week of the season.
Crouse and the Nittany Lions will be back in action for the start of Big Ten play on Friday against Minnesota.
