EL PASO, TEXAS - Junior Tess Hall has been selected as the Conference USA Women's Soccer Co-Offensive Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Hall was involved in three of the four goals for UTEP, helping it open Conference USA play with a pair of wins over the weekend.

She calmly converted a penalty kick with a shot into upper 90's country for the lone tally in a 1-0 triumph against Marshall on Sept. Hall was instrumental in the Miners' 3-2 victory against East Carolina on Sept. 25.

With the match tied (1-0) UTEP earned a free kick from the right wing. Hall played a perfect ball into the area, which was one-timed home by Azia Nicholson. Less than two minutes later, the Miners had another free kick. Hall sent a pass to Katie Dorman, who headed home the shot for the eventual game-winning goal.

UTEP is now 8-2-1 on the year, including 5-0-1 over its past six matches.
