HIGH POINT, N.C. – For the third time this year, a High Point University women’s soccer player has earned Big South Freshman of the Week honors, with Brooke Parsons collecting the first designation of her career this Wednesday.
Parsons delivered both of High Point’s goals against Gardner-Webb and Longwood this past week, collecting the second and third of her current campaign. Both tallies were potential ‘goal of the year’ nominees, with her first coming on a shot from nearly 30 yards out, that deflected off the post and the Bulldog keeper, before crossing the goalline. Her second of the week came at an impossible angle, striking an absolute rope from the right side of the 18, that cleared the Longwood keeper and deflected off the woodwork and in. Parsons is currently on a three-game point streak after securing an assist against Winthrop just over a week ago, and holds 10 points in conference-play alone this year.
