Dobyns honored with weekly awards
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Following a nine save, two shutout weekend, Kansas senior goalkeeper Maddie Dobyns garnered a pair of weekly honors for her efforts. The Big 12 Conference named her its Defensive Player of the Week, while Top Drawer Soccer added her to its ‘Team of the Week’, which highlights the top 11 players from the last week of collegiate soccer action.
Dobyns, a native of Kansas City, Missouri, was key in the Jayhawks’ undefeated weekend as they topped Tulsa (2-0) and Oregon State (2-0), both on the road. She collected nine saves on the weekend, which included a six-save effort against the Beavers Sunday, as she and the Kansas defense posted a pair of shutouts. Dobyns’ biggest moment of the weekend came in the 68th minute against Oregon State, when she stopped a Beaver penalty kick attempt to preserve the Jayhawk lead. The senior has now gone more than 291 minutes since conceding an opponent goal.
Dobyns and the rest of her Jayhawk teammates will be back in action this Friday against the Colorado College Tigers. First touch from Rock Chalk Park is set for 7 p.m.
