Senior defender Carolyn Warner (Morris Plains, N.J./Parsippany Hills) continues to be a scoring threat from the backline for The University of Scranton women's soccer team, adding two goals and an assist in a pair of victories last week.

For her efforts, Warner has been named the Landmark Conference Defensive Athlete of the Week for women's soccer.

Warner, who was also honored after the opening week of the season, tallied a goal in a 4-0 non-conference win over Wilkes on Wednesday at Fitzpatrick Field. She scored in the 12th minute for her first career game-winning goal, and she played a key role as the Royals posted their third straight shutout.

On Saturday, Warner again played a key role in a 5-0 rout of Landmark Conference foe Elizabethtown at Fitzpatrick Field. She scored in the 19th minute for the Royals' second goal and later added an assist on a beautifully played ball from the backline that resulted in the team's final goal.

Scranton (8-1-1, 2-0 Landmark) picked up its fourth straight shutout and sixth of the season in the win on Saturday.

Warner and the Royals will return to action on Wednesday, Oct. 5, when they travel to Dallas, Pa. to take on Misericordia in a non-conference match at 7 p.m.
