Maura Fox Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Freshman midfielder Maura Fox (Shrewsbury, Mass.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from October 12-18. Fox led the Holy Cross women's soccer team to a 1-0-1 record last week, with a 4-1 victory over Yale and a 0-0 tie against Lehigh.

In the victory over Yale, Fox scored two of the Crusaders' goals, including the game winner. Her first goal was an unassisted tally at the 15:34-mark, which gave Holy Cross a 2-0 lead at the time. Fox then scored again at the 86:00-mark, when she buried a shot off of a scramble right in front of the goal mouth to conclude the scoring.

On the season, Fox is now tied for fourth on the team in scoring with six points on three goals. She has also started all 15 of the Crusaders' games on the year.

Holy Cross (7-6-2 overall, 1-2-1 Patriot League) return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 20, when it plays host to Brown at 7:00 p.m.
