HPU goalkeeper earns Pac West honors

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

After posting back-to-back shutouts last week, Hawaii` Pacific Women's Soccer goalkeeper Anu Kahele-Manners has been named the Pacific West Conference Women's Soccer Freshman of the Week. Ashlyn Ubongen was named to the Final Five team.

After an eight-save shutout of Point Loma in the last game of the road trip, Kahele-Manners was again strong against Notre Dame de Namur on Saturday. The freshman controlled the goal area and stopped both shots she faced before Ubongen broke the scoreless tie in the 88th minute to give HPU the win.

Ubongen's goal was a beauty, as she volleyed the ball to herself and sent a strong kick into the top-left corner of the net. The junior midfielder now leads the team with two game-winning goals on the season.

The Sea Warriors return to action on October 17th when they face Dominican University of California at Atherton Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
