PRINCETON, N.J. - Women's soccer senior tri-captain Aurelia Solomon's (Washington, D.C.) game-winning goal against Penn (Oct. 13) and an assist against Brown (Oct. 9) earned her co-Ivy League honors it was announced by the league office on Monday (Oct. 15).

Solomon earns her first career Player of the Week award and is the third Big Green player to earn Ivy League honors this season, joining teammates Emma Brush (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) and Corey Delaney (Chatham, N.J.).

The Washington, D.C., native has been a stalwart for the Big Green defense throughout her career but earns the award for a pair of offensive points last week. In Dartmouth's 1-0 non-conference win over Brown on Oct. 9, she assisted on Brush's game-winner for her second assist of the season.

She followed her assist with the game-winner in Dartmouth's 2-1 upset of Ivy League leader Penn on Oct. 13. The game-winner was her first of the season and gave the Big Green its third consecutive win.

Solomon has been a part of the Dartmouth backline that has held opponents to just 12 goals this season and a .086 shots percentage. Solomon and the Big Green defense have limited opponents to 10.8 shots per game and are sporting a 0.91 goals against average.

The Big Green put its three-game winning streak on the line when they host Boston University in the final non-conference game of the season on Wednesday (Oct. 17). Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Burnham Field.
