PHILADELPHIA - Penn women's soccer player Jessica Fuccello has received national recognition this week by being named to the SoccerBuzz.com Elite Team of the Week. It is the second time the freshman forward has been honored by the website devoted to college women's soccer.
Fuccello scored twice in the final 11 minutes to help the Quakers come back from a two-goal deficit and tie Brown, 2-2, Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia. Earlier in the week, she had two goals and an assist as the Quakers went out of league to gain a 4-1 win over La Salle.
Fuccello now has nine goals and five assists for 23 points. Her goal total is tied for seventh on Penn’s single-season list, and her point total is sixth on the program’s single-season list. Fuccello also has the best goal total by a Penn freshman since 2001.
The Penn women's soccer team (8-4-3, 1-3-2 Ivy) finishes its season Saturday afternoon at Princeton. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m. at the Tigers' Lourie-Love Field.
