2. AWARDS: UNC's O'Reilly is honored


North Carolina's Heather O'Reilly is the Soccer America Women's Player of the Week for the two goals she scored to lead the Tar Heels past then-No. 1 Florida State, 2-1.

The U.S. international opened the scoring with a 28-yard blast in the first half and followed that with the game-winner as she sent a bending shot from outside the top of the box with less than seven minutes remaining in the match. The goal was O'Reilly's first game-winner of the season.

On Sunday, O'Reilly tallied her third goal of the week in the 52nd minute in a 6-1 win over Miami (Fla.).
