PEMBROKE – A phenomenal week on the pitch that helped lead the University of North Carolina at Pembroke women’s soccer team to its first two victories of the season has earned sophomore defender Jasmine Senécal-Guzman Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week laurels, the league office announced this week.
Senécal-Guzman, a native of Montreal, Canada, scored four times and added two assists as the Braves registered a 2-1 record on the week, including home victories over Pfeiffer and Peach Belt Conference foe Georgia Southwestern. She also added six shots, four of which were on target, and helped limit Georgia Southwestern to no shots on goal through the first 83 minutes of Saturday’s victory.
She began her week by providing UNCP’s lone goal in a 2-1 setback at Queens, but netted the go-ahead goal in the 32nd minute in the 4-2 victory over Pfeiffer. Senécal-Guzman tallied a career performance against Georgia Southwestern on Saturday, scoring twice on headers in a 65 second span in the opening period, and then assisting on Stacey Scott’s goal 20 minutes later.
A 2014 All-Peach Belt Conference selection and all-region selection by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), Senécal-Guzman has started in all 24 games of her collegiate career and has scored 13 points on six goals and one assist.
