Dunnigan Named SLC Defensive Player of the Week
Oct. 15, 2013
FRISCO, Texas - Following their sixth straight victory, all of which have been shutouts, Stephen F. Austin junior defender Megan Dunnigan was honored on Tuesday by being named the Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Dunnigan, a native of Round Rock, Texas (Vista Ridge HS), anchored the Ladyjack defense to two shutouts on the week with 2-0 conquests over both McNeese State and Abilene Christian. The junior played a big role in helping SFA to its league-leading 10th and 11th shutouts on the season. In the two matches, SFA only surrendered 10 shots on goal, while Dunnigan assisted on the game-winning goal against ACU in the seventh minute of play. Dunnigan is a vital part of the SFA defense that currently leads the nation with a .786 shutout percentage.
The award is Dunnigan's second this season.
SFA will look to extend up its current six-game win streak this Friday in a 3:00 p.m. showdown at Southeastern Louisiana. Following the road tilt, the Ladyjacks will return home to play a 1 p.m. match on Sunday versus Nicholls State.
