DeKALB, Ill. - Sophomore goalkeeper Lindsey Curnock (Batavia, Ill./Batavia) was named the Mid-American Conference Player of the Week following a pair of shutouts during the weekend that moved her to the top of the NIU record book.
"Lindsey had a great weekend for us," head coach Marci Miller Jobson said. "We are starting to see her game mature. She is playing with confidence and consistency and showed that this weekend. In two tight games she made big saves at key times."
Curnock made five saves in the Huskies 1-0 victory at Ohio on Friday. The whitewashing was the 11th of Curnock's career, moving her into sole possession of first place on NIU's all-time list.
Two days later, Curnock made five stops in a 0-0 overtime tie at Akron, for her fifth shutout of the season and the 12th of her career.
Curnock's five shutouts are the fourth-highest single season total in NIU history. Last season, she recorded seven shutouts, the second-highest season total by a Huskie. Curnock has not been scored upon in the last 228:06, including 200 minutes of shutout play over the weekend, and owns season goals against average of 0.59.
Prior to Curnock's award, the most recent Huskie goalkeeper to earn MAC Player of the Week accolades was Carrie Dvorak during the 2004 campaign.
