Pereira Named Crusader Of The Week

Sept. 5, 2005

WORCESTER, Mass. - Junior midfielder Lauren Pereira (Ludlow, Mass.) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from August 29-September 4. Pereira scored a pair of goals last week to help lead the Holy Cross women's soccer team to its first two victories of the season.

In the 1-0 victory over Iona on Sept. 1, Pereira scored the only goal of the game at the 64:31 mark off a pass from junior forward Meredith Davis (Worcester, Mass.) to give the Crusaders the win. She came back with another goal in the game at Siena on Sept. 3, which tied the score at 1-1 at the 13:26 mark. Holy Cross would go on to win that game 3-2 in overtime.

On the season, Pereira is tied for the team lead in both goals (two) and points (four). Over the course of her Holy Cross career, she has now totaled four goals and three assists for 11 points.

The Crusaders (2-2 overall) return to action on Friday, Sept. 9, when they travel to Providence for a 4:00 p.m. game.
