The goducks.com student-athlete for the week of August 20-26th is Kristen Parr from the Oregon Soccer team! The freshman from Bend scored both Oregon goals in the season opener for a 2-0 win over the University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers.
This was the first win in the Ducks’ new home of Papé Field.
Parr scored the inaugural goal of Papé Field early in the match with a point-blank shot coming in the fourth minute. In the second half, Parr made a long run down the right side in the 60th minute to beat the UAB goalie and score the go-ahead goal.
The forward from Summit High School hopes to maintain her early success in this weekend’s road games at Portland (Fri. Aug. 24th) and Portland State (Sun. Aug. 26th).
