Niners sweep soccer awards

The Charlotte 49ers made a clean sweep of the Atlantic 10 player of the week awards in men's and women's soccer.

Senior midfielder Lindsey Ozimek was named A-10 player of the week after scoring three goals and recording two assists in the 49ers' two Atlantic 10 games last weekend.

Ozimek contributed on four of Charlotte's five goals in a 5-0 win at Duquesne last Friday. She assisted on the 49ers' second and fifth goals in the game. She also scored the game-tying goal in the 49ers' 1-1 double overtime tie with Fordham on Sunday.

Charlotte 49ers senior forward Tom Woollard was named A-10 men's co-player of the week after scoring two goals including the game-winner in the 49ers' 4-0 win at Appalachian State last Saturday.

Woollard collected his first career multiple-goal game when he scored the Charlotte's first two goals in its victory at Appalachian State, stopping the Mountaineers' eight match unbeaten streak. Woollard missed the 49ers' first four games of the season recovering from an injury.
