Junior forward Jamie Hreniuk (West Caldwell, N.J./James Caldwell) continued to be a major headache for Landmark Conference opponents, tallying a goal and an assist to lead The University of Scranton women's soccer team to a 3-1 win at Elizabethtown on Saturday.

As a result, Hreniuk has been named the University's Athlete of the Week for the second time in her career.

Needing a win to remain unbeaten in conference play, the Royals (6-2-2, 2-0 Landmark) scored three times in a 14-minute span to turn a scoreless game into a route. Hreniuk got things started when she delivered a perfect pass to freshman Mazie Stiles (Nyack, N.Y./Albertus Magnus), who scored her first career goal in the 69th minute.

After the Royals doubled their lead in the 71st minute, Hreniuk put the game away with her seventh goal of the season in the 82nd minute. It was her 20th career goal, seven of which have come against Landmark Conference opponents.

Hreniuk was also named University of Scranton Athlete of the Week on Sept. 26, 2016.

Hreniuk and the Royals will be back in action on Saturday, Oct. 7, when they host Susquehanna in a Landmark Conference match at 1 p.m. at Fitzpatrick Field.
