By Doug Fitzgerald published September 9, 2008

COLORADO SPRINGS - For the second time in as many weeks, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs goalkeeper Amie Kern was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women's soccer defensive player of the week, the conference announced Tuesday.

The senior from Saylorsburg, Pa., made nine saves to hold nationally-ranked Minnesota State, Mankato scoreless over 110 minutes (90 minutes in regulation and two 10-minute overtime periods) in the Mountain Lions' only match of the week. The 0-0 draw gave the first-year UCCS women's soccer program a 2-0-1 record to start the season.

Kern, who transferred to UCCS from Division I George Washington, has yet to allow a goal in 290 minutes this season

The Mountain Lions will open RMAC play with two matches this week. They travel to Durango for a matchup with two-time defending conference champion Fort Lewis on Friday before coming back home for a matchup against Mesa State at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
