PRINCETON N.J. - Sophomore forward Tasha Wilkins (Portland, Ore.) of the Dartmouth women's soccer team picked up her first career Ivy League Player of the Week accolade after scoring two goals in Dartmouth's 2-0 win over Harvard on Sunday (Oct. 28). 

Wilkins becomes the third Big Green player to take home Player of the Week honors joining teammates Emma Brush (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) and Aurelia Solomon (Washington, D.C.) Wilkins shares the honor with Princeton's Laura Lazo.

Wilkins scored both of Dartmouth's goals in a 2-0 win over rival, Harvard, in the final home game of the regular season. It was her second consecutive game-winning goal as she picked up the game-winner against Columbia on Oct. 20. She also assisted on Kendall Kraus' (San Diego, Calif.) game-winning goal against Boston University (Oct. 17). Her two goals marked her first career multiple-goal game.

The Oregon native has seen action in nine games this season off the bench and has scored points in each of the last three games and is sporting a two-game scoring streak.  She ranks third on the team in points with nine on four goals and one assist and is tied for second with two game-winning goals.

The Big Green takes its six-game winning streak to Cornell on Saturday (Nov. 3). The Big Green and Big Red will square off at 3:00 p.m. in the regular-season finale for both teams.
