Amanda Longan Goes Big For Fifth MPSF Newcomer of the Week Award|
April 19, 2016
Freshman goalie Amanda Longan set a new career-high mark for herself while anchoring the Trojans to a big MPSF win over No. 3 Stanford. In doing so, the standout freshman has collected her fifth selection as the MPSF Newcomer of the Week.
In a full 32 minutes of work, Longan hauled in 17 saves against the Cardinal, while holding USC’s host to just three goals. The 8-3 victory secured the top seed for the undefeated Trojans in the coming MPSF Tournament and marked USC’s biggest win over Stanford since 2009.
Longan and the Women of Troy now turn to wrap the regular season with one last home game at Uytengsu Aquatics Center this week. USC will host Cal in the regular-season finale at 2 p.m. on Friday (April 22).
