This Halloween, freshman Courtney Dramm scored the first goal in the Women’s Soccer game and a second one during the second half against Cornell College. This first goal was not only what Knox needed to win the game, but it was also Courtney’s first goal of the season. Freshman Bryssa Montez assisted on Courtney’s first goal of the game mid-way through the first period of play. Courtney’s second goal was one of five scored by our Prairie Fire in the second half and was assisted by freshman Yvette Rodriguez, leading to a 6-0 victory for Knox’s Women’s Soccer. Courtney’s performance this week is why she has been chosen the Prairie Fire Player of the Week.
Dramm came to Knox from Henderson, Nev. where she attended Coronado. Courtney also plays for a club team known as Heat FC. This is only the thiwrd game Courtney has started this season, while she has played in 16 games. As someone who is not a common starter, Courtney took advantage of her early minutes in the Cornell game, capitalizing on a scoring opportunity early. This season Courtney has taken over half of her shots on goal and has amounted to two goals this season. This weekend was also Courtney’s first game-winning goal; plenty of firsts are now behind this developing player.
With the regular season now over, Women’s Soccer will be competing against Lake Forest College this upcoming Friday in Lake Forest, Ill. In Knox’s last match against Lake Forest this season, the Prairie Fire tied the Foresters 2-2. Competition will be fierce as the first tournament matches begin Friday.
