Colohan named WCC Offensive Player of the Week for second time this season
SAN MATEO, Calif. – BYU soccer senior forward Mikayla Colohan was named the West Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.
After a disappointing home loss to Santa Clara two weeks ago, the Cougars picked up two wins last week, 4-1 over UVU in the UCCU Crosstown Clash, and 5-1 over Pacific, with Colohan leading the way in both games.
Against UVU, Colohan factored in on all four BYU goals, scoring two and assisting on the other two. Colohan scored the first and second goals of the game, giving her another game-winner, the seventh of her career and second of the season. It was also the seventh multi-goal match of her career. The All-American led the way in shots in the game with seven.
In BYU's WCC matchup against Pacific, Colohan assisted on BYU's first goal of the game in the 27th minute. In the 56th minute, Colohan assisted on another goal to give BYU the 3-1 lead. The midfielder put the game away with her fourth made penalty kick in four straight games in the 78th minute to give BYU the 5-1 victory. Colohan again led BYU in shots in the game with eight and five on goal.
Colohan now has 31 goals in her career and 18 assists.
Colohan has been named to the Hermann Trophy watch list for the second year in a row. She was drafted by the Orlando Pride with the 14th overall pick in the 2021 NWSL Draft.
Throughout her career, Colohan has been awarded four WCC Player of the Week honors, and was also the 2019 WCC Player of the Year.
