BYU's senior midfielder Rachel Manning was named the WCC women's soccer Player of the Week for Aug. 26. Manning scored two goals in the Cougars 3-1 win over Cal State Fullerton. She scored her first goal of the season in the 26th minute off a free kick from Paige Hunt. Manning scored her second goal of the game in the 78th minute after Ashley Hatch drew a penalty kick and Manning slotted it past the goalie to give BYU its final margin of victory.

The two-goal performance doubled Manning's career total from two to four. She had scored two goals in her previous 64 games, but netted two against Cal State Fullerton.

The No. 6 BYU women's soccer team take on Nebraska this Saturday at 7 p.m. at South Field.
