COLUMBIA, Mo. – The University of Missouri soccer team earned back-to-back Southeastern Conference Player of the Week honors as sophomore Kylee Simmons collected the offensive accolade Monday, Sept. 18, the league office announced. 

This marks Simmons’ first conference weekly honor in her career and the second for the team this season, as redshirt sophomore Bella Hollenbach was awarded the defensive player of the week on Sept. 11. 

Simmons led Missouri in a 3-2 win at Florida on Sept. 15, contributing to all three goals. Assisting on the first goal, senior Jenna Bartels scored in the 12th minute; the sophomore earned the second helper and scored the next two for Mizzou. One goal came off a penalty kick in the 22nd minute, and the other in the 49th minute off a beautiful pass from senior Grace Pettet

The game tabs the second brace for Simmons this season and the first five-point match of her career. The West Chester, Ohio native leads the conference in points (16) and points per game (2.00) while tying for first in goals (7) and goals per game (.88). The five points against the Gators are also tied for second in conference single-game point totals this season.

Missouri stays on the road, heading to Auburn for a tiger faceoff on Thursday, Sept. 21. The game is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm CT and can be streamed on SEC Network+.
