GRANADOS EARNS SECOND STRAIGHT CAA ROOKIE OF THE WEEK HONOR
RICHMOND, Va. – For the second week in a row, VCU freshman midfielder Cristin Granados has been named Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week. She led an exciting weekend for the Rams after scoring the game-winning goals in a pair of 1-0 victories over UNC Wilmington and Georgia State.
Granados netted the game-winner off a corner kick with less than three minutes remaining in VCU's victory over the Seahawks on Friday. She then found the net as time expired in the Rams' win over Georgia State on Sunday. On the week, the Cartago, Costa Rica native fired seven shots with four on goal.
VCU has outshot its opponents 81-30 during its last four games (all shutouts) and has allowed just 12 goals (0.86 gaa) all year, which is the second-fewest in the CAA. The Rams have yielded just three goals in their last seven matches and have not surrendered a goal in the previous 443 minutes. VCU has held an opponent scoreless six times this season.
The Rams, who are currently in a three-way tie for fourth place in the CAA, begin their final road trip of the season at Delaware on Friday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. VCU then concludes its road schedule on Oct. 16 at Drexel. The Black & Gold finishes the regular season with three straight home matches.
