Ruppersberger tabbed Offensive Performer of the Week

William Smith College senior midfielder Ava Ruppersberger was named the Liberty League Soccer Offensive Performer of the Week this afternoon.
Ruppersberger guided the Herons to a 1-0-1 week on Cozzens Field. On Wednesday, she scored both goals as William Smith rallied to defeat Geneseo 2-1 in its home opener. Twenty-three seconds after the Knights took a 1-0 lead, Ruppersberger converted a penalty kick to tie the game. She won the game in the 80th minute. She intercepted a clearing pass, carried the ball 20 yards, and buried a left-footed shot in the bottom right corner of the cage. On Sunday, the Herons tied Rocester 2-2. Ruppersberger had two shots.
Through four games, Ruppersberger is tied for the team lead with five points. She has two goals and one assist.
William Smith (3-0-1) will be back in action on Saturday, Sept. 16, when it heads to Grantham, Pennsylvania, to take on third-ranked Messiah University. It will be the 16th meeting between the two teams.
