DANAE KALDARIDOU SELECTED AS ADIDAS OVC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
September 6, 2016
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin soccer program received its first Adidas Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week honors of 2016 this afternoon as sophomore Danae Kaldaridou was selected as the league’s Offensive Player of the Week.
Kaldaridou scored the first two goals of her UT Martin career this past Friday against Troy. The Skyhawks were trailing 1-0 with just six minutes remaining before Kaldaridou took over. The native of Athens, Greece scored once off a free kick as she won the ball between two defenders in the box, and then she netted the game-winning goal just four minutes later by timing her run perfectly and finishing off a corner kick.
The award marks Kaldaridou’s first Player of the Week honor of her career and the program’s first Offensive Player of the Week accolade since 2015.
Kaldaridou and the Skyhawks return to the pitch this Friday, Sept. 9 as they travel to Chattanooga to take on the Mocs. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m.
