Eike Daube & Stephania Haralabidis Sweep MPSF Weekly Awards
Feb. 24, 2014
Following the top-ranked Trojans' powerful run to the 2014 UCI Invitational championship this past weekend, USC has made it an MPSF sweep of the weekly awards. Junior Eike Daube has locked in her first career selection as the MPSF Player of the Week, and freshman Stephania Haralabidis has hauled in her first collegiate award as the MPSF Newcomer of the Week.
Eike Daube went big for the Trojans on the crucial second day of the UCI Invitational, delivering a fourth-quarter hat trick to help lead the Trojans to a 12-7 semifinal win over No. 4 Cal before coming up clutch in the championship game. Daube scored twice during the second overtime period to pull USC out of a 6-5 OT hole and secure the tournament title for the Trojans with a 7-6 comeback win against No. 3 UCLA. Her five goals on Sunday paired with a goal during group play the previous day to give Daube 16 goals this season - just 12 games into the year. As a sophomore, Daube scored 23 total goals in all of 2013.
Daube, Haralabidis and the Women of Troy return to action this weekend with a trip to Tempe, Ariz., to take on Arizona State in an MPSF matchup at 1 p.m. on Saturday (March 1).
