MILWAUKEE--Marquette University senior women's soccer player Maegan Kelly has been named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon.

The Golden Eagles (6-3) played just one game last week, a 3-2 double overtime victory over Louisville Saturday night. Kelly scored two of the three goals for MU, including a game-winning penalty kick in the 104th minute.

Kelly leads Marquette with 10 points this season, including three goals and four assists. She recently tied the program's all-time assists record with her 33rd career assist. This is the first conference honor for the senior.

The Golden Eagles are in action tonight at Milwaukee's Engelmann Stadium. Kick-off is slated for 7 p.m. MU will open BIG EAST play at Creighton on Thursday, Sept. 23 and at Villanova on Sunday, Sept. 29.
