Why: Pougiales scored a pair of goals in helping the Sailors go 2-0-1 last week. Against Battle Mountain, in a 1-1 draw, Pougiales moved from to the central back role and played the entire game, including overtime.

Quotable: "Ali really was a fantastic source of inspiration for the whole team from pregame throughout the game. She shared a lot of leadership and organization in the back. The girls responded to Ali. She's a player we've been able to plug into a couple different roles." — Coach Rob Bohlmann
