BOISE, Idaho - Boise State’s Annie Tom has been named this week’s WAC soccer offensive player of the week for her performance over the weekend helping the Broncos to a 1-0-1 record in two matches. The senior from Mililani, Hawaii scored the decisive goal for Boise State in a 4-3 double-overtime win last Friday at Sacramento State.
Tom played in both matches last week as Boise State completed their non-conference schedule at 5-4-1 overall. She came in off the bench on Friday (Sept. 29) to score the sudden victory game-winning goal 19 seconds into the second overtime at Sacramento State to give Boise State the win. The victory over the Hornets snapped a three-match losing streak for the Broncos as they completed a five game road swing over the last three weeks. It was Tom’s second goal of the season moving her point total to five on the year, it was also her third career goal.
This is Tom’s first career WAC player of the week honor. She is the eighth Bronco all-time and the second this year to receive this weekly WAC recognition. Junior Nicole Tadman was the previous Boise State honoree this season having been named the league’s offensive player of the week on September 11. This brings the program’s total of POW honors to 10 since joining the conference for the 2001 season.
