Ashley Named National Player Of The Week

By on September 6, 2018

University of North Carolina senior Julia Ashley has been named the National Player of the Week by Top Drawer Soccer. The period covered Ashley’s appearances in games from August 27, 2018 through September 2, 2018.

This marked Ashley’s second appearance this year on the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. The senior defender, who is a 2015 graduate of Verona High School, also appeared on the team that was named on August 20, 2018.

In wins over Providence 1-0 and Marquette 4-0 last week, Ashley led a defense that allowed only 11 shots combined in the two games and just one corner kick. UNC has shut out its last three opponents and has not allowed a goal in almost 379 minutes.

Ashley scored the game-winning goal in the win over Providence, the second game-winning tally of her career. She also had the game-winner as a junior against Virginia Tech. Against Marquette she assisted on Zoe Redei’s second goal of the game and then scored a goal of her own in the 36th minute.
