Women's Soccer - Offense: Gina Williams, Forward, 5-6, Senior, Madison, Wis./Verona Area

Williams was instrumental in helping the Blugolds win two overtime contests at home this week. Wednesday against No. 1-ranked Wheaton College (Ill.) with the Thunder up 1-0, Williams scored the tying goal at 86:09, sending the game into overtime. Then, in the second overtime at 102:33, Williams scored again to lift the Blugolds to the 2-1 victory, their first over Wheaton in the teams’ 13-game series. It was also Wheaton’s first loss of the season. Facing UW-Stevens Point on Saturday, the Blugolds took a 2-0 lead but the Pointers tied the game with two goals in the second half. Just 59 seconds into the first overtime, Williams scored on a penalty kick to give the Blugolds a 3-2 victory. She finished the week with 10 shots, seven of them on-goal.
