Elis Nemtsov, Georgia Southern
(R-Fr., Bradford, Ontario)

Eagles’ redshirt freshman forward Elis Nemtsov tallied three goals this past week as Georgia Southern opened its Sun Belt Conference slate vs. App State and closed out its non-conference schedule at Ole Miss. She tallied a pair of second-half goals in Friday’s 4-1 win against App State, marking her second brace of the year. Nemtsov also added a second-half goal in her team’s close 2-1 loss against the Rebels. Her six goals this season are tied for the team lead and rank among the top-five in the Sun Belt.

Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week
Bergros Asgeirsdottir, Little Rock
(Sr., Selfoss, Iceland)

Trojans’ senior defender Bergros Asgeirsdottir charted a pair of goals to lead Little Rock to a 1-0-1 start to Sun Belt Conference play. She scored the game-winning goal in overtime off a penalty kick to lead Little Rock to the 1-0 victory against Troy. She followed that with the game-tying goal in the 85th minute against South Alabama on Sunday as the Trojans and Jaguars tied 1-1. Over the weekend, Asgeirsdottir became Little Rock’s all-time leader in minutes and games played. She anchored the Trojans’ defensive unit that helped guide Little Rock to a pair of shutouts on the week (vs. Jackson State and Troy), conceding just one goal in 296 minutes of action.
