Wahine Soccer: Uecker gets respect

Central defender earns WAC defensive player of the week honors.


University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine central defender Jessica Uecker has been named WAC defensive player of the week for her efforts in Hawaii's 6-1 victory over Long Island last Thursday.

The win snapped the Rainbow Wahine's four-match losing streak. The visiting Blackbirds were able to get off only two shots on goal and were outshot by Hawaii, 42-7.

Uecker, a sophomore from Rapid City, South Dakota, has been a big asset for a team that has had to battle numerous injuries.

Hawaii(2-5-1) returns to action tonight against Long Beach State(1-5-1). Kickoff is set for 5pm at the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Stadium.
