BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Following a weekend that saw her post match-winning goals during the last seven minutes of regulation to defeat both Memphis and Western Carolina by identical 2-1 scores, Tennessee Lady Vol senior forward Mick Imgram has been tabbed as the Southeastern Conference's Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 14th. She joins junior goalkeeper Molly Baird (SEC Defensive Player of the Week, Sept. 7th) as Big Orange soccer honorees thus far in 2009.
This is the third time in Imgram's career that she has received one of the league's weekly awards. Back on Oct. 9, 2006, the Clifton, Va., native reaped SEC Freshman of the Week accolades, while on Sept. 4, 2007, Imgram was chosen as the SEC Offensive Player of the Week.
With Tennessee facing a 1-1 deadlock and time running short against a rugged Memphis squad on Fri., Sept. 11th, at Regal Soccer Stadium, Imgram took a free kick off a foul and blasted home a shot from deep on the left wing with just 2:46 left in regulation to help UT prevail. Just two days later against Western Carolina, the Lady Vols again found themselves locked in a 1-1 tie nearing the end of the second stanza. Sophomore forward Emily Dowd worked hard on the left wing and sent a cross through the six-yard box right to the feet of Imgram. From there the senior tickled the twine at 83:01 with her third match-winner of 2009. Imgram currently guides the '09 Lady Vols with four goals, 10 total points and 36 shots and has moved into a tie for fifth in Tennessee history with nine career match winners.
Imgram and her Lady Vol squad are prepping for a road challenge this Sun., Sept 20th, at 1 p.m. with a match-up at No. 12 West Virginia. The game is slated to be broadcast live from Morgantown, W. Va., on the West Virginia Public Broadcasting System. Live stats are expected to be available through utladyvols.com.
