Sophomore comes up big for Jacks with first goal

AUSTIN HAMM Sports Editor

SDSU soccer player Julia Lam is this week’s Collegian Sports Athlete of the Week after she scored the Jacks’ go-ahead goal with 45 seconds left in regulation against Northern Iowa on Friday, preventing the Jacks from entering overtime for the third straight game.

 The sophomore from Apple Valley, Minn. registered two shots on goal for the game, including the game-winner that was her first score of the season. Lam has appeared in eight of the Jacks nine games this season with two starts. She has seven total shots for the year, but was not able to have one on goal until the UNI game.

As a freshman last season, Lam had four shots on the year but did not score a goal.

Lam and the Jacks’ soccer team travel to Kansas this week to face the Jayhawks on Friday. They will be back home on Oct. 4 to face the Omaha Mavericks in their conference opener.
