LAKELAND, Fla.  –  For the second time this season, the No. 12 Southeastern University women’s soccer team has swept The Sun Conference Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week honors.

Sophomore forward Uchenna Kanu rewrote the Southeastern record book when she scored the most single game goals in program history, with five versus Thomas. With Southeastern trailing on the road 3-2 in the second half, the Abia, Nigeria native took the game over, finding the back of the net four times in the half. Three of the four second half goals were netted in a span of 15 minutes. Three of Kanu’s scores on the day were off set pieces from 20, 25, and 30 yards out.

Senior goalkeeper Kaitlyn Romero entered the game versus Thomas after the Night Hawks had tied things up 2-2. Romero limited the Night Hawks to just one goal and made three crucial saves that stifled the Thomas momentum. Versus St. Thomas, the Jacksonville native played the full 90 and tied her career high in saves with eight. Her performance was key to the Fire shutting out the Bobcats and delivering them their first loss of the season.

This marks the sixth time Kanu has received weekly recognition in her collegiate career and the second time for Romero.

The Fire are back in action this week as they host SCAD on Wednesday. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
