Columbus State women's soccer keeper Kelly Nimmo has been named the Peach Belt Conference Goalkeeper of the week for the second time this season.
Nimmo has played in every game this season, logging nearly 700 minutes while allowing only a single goal on 51 shots.
Here's the official release from CSU:
Senior goalkeeper Kelly Nimmo is once again the Peach Belt Conference's Goalkeeper of the Week, after helping the Lady Cougars to their ninth shutout for 2009. She also earned the award in September after CSU’s second and third shutouts of the season. This week Nimmo faced off against the highest-scoring team in the PBC, Armstrong Atlantic State, and handed them only their second shutout of the season. The senior netminder spent 80 minutes in the game, making three saves on the eight shots she faced. Nimmo and the Cougars are currently ranked second nationally in shutout percentage and have allowed only two goals scored against them this season, (www.peachbeltconference.org).
Last Saturday’s 4-0 win over AASU puts the team at 11-0-1 for the season and brings the team’s record to 4-0 in the conference, while taking AASU down to 6-1 in the PBC. The Lady Cougars are currently the only unbeaten team in the PBC, but remain second to AASU in total conference wins.
The Lady Cougars hit the road again next Wednesday, October 14th, visiting Clayton State, whose 2-2-1 PBC record places them at the median sixth spot of eleven in the conference.
Wednesday, October 21 will be the next CSU soccer home game and will feature the long-awaited Walden Soccer Complex dedication ceremony, honoring John and Rankin Walden for their contributions to the university and its many programs. CSU hosts PBC team North Georgia College & State University at 6:00 PM (EDT) that evening.
