W-SOC Offensive Athlete of the Week

Senior Ann Marie Tangorra (Arcadia, Calif./Cal State Los Angeles) shined on the pitch for Cal State Fullerton, scoring both of the team's goals in an effort that earned her Big West Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.


Tangorra notched her first goal against No. 1 Florida State in Tallahassee, tying the match in the 12th minute to answer a third-minute goal from the Seminoles. It was Tangorra's only shot of the day and the goal extinguished Florida State's shutout streak of nearly 365 minutes in the process.


In a 1-0 victory against Creighton, Tangorra struck with the game-winning score in the 89th minute as she volleyed home a ball from Jennifer Smith. The forward was all over the field against the Bluejays as she peppered them with six shots, including three on goal. Her goal secured Fullerton's second win of the year.


Tangorra has amassed a point in three consecutive matches.
