ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Olaf junior goalkeeper Nora Forbes was named the MIAC women's soccer player of the week on Tuesday after posting a pair of shutouts last week.

Forbes made eight saves in a 0-0 tie with Augsburg before making six in a 1-0 win on Friday at Macalester. Her .921 save percentage and 0.47 goal against average lead the league.

The Oles (6-5-3, 4-2-2 MIAC) are in a three-way tie for second place with three conference games left. They play a non-league game at UW-River Falls on Wednesday before a home match with MIAC-leading Concordia-Moorhead on Saturday.
