Frannie Crouse Named Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Week

The Big Ten honored Frannie Crouse with Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season after helping women’s soccer to a win over Purdue on Sunday.

Crouse scored two goals over the weekend. She netted the game-tying goal against Rutgers on Thursday to force overtime and eventually help the Nittany Lions avoid their first Big Ten loss of the year in a 2-2 tie.

Crouse then went on to score the game-winning goal against Purdue on Sunday. Her shot from about 25 yards out was buried upper 90 to give Penn State a first half lead in the 1-0 win over the Boilermakers.The goal against Purdue moved her to 12th all-time among Penn State goalscorers with 32 goals.

This is the third time in her career that she was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week. She earned the honor in September of 2015 after she tallied a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win over Stanford. Earlier this season, she earned the honor after scoring three goals in two wins against San Diego State and La Salle.
