The start of the season is one of the best times for players to step up and make a statement. Junior forward Annmarie Alvarez did just that, scoring in both her shots on the goal during Biola’s home opener to lead her team to a 3-2 overtime win against Cal State University Dominguez Hills.

Her first goal of the game put the Eagles ahead 1-0 when she pushed a pass from junior defender Colie Martin into the goal for Biola’s first score of the season. The two teams battled into overtime, where Alvarez tallied her second goal of the game to secure the win for the Eagles, ripping a shot past the goalie on a cross from junior forward Sarah Jeffries.

Alvarez has put the whole conference on notice, earning PacWest Women’s Soccer Player of the Week honors mainly for her performance against the Toros.

She has been a powerful presence on offense in the Eagles’ first two games, creating opportunities for her teammates while her two goals led the PacWest. For her excellent display on offense, Alvarez has earned Chimes Athlete of the Week.

Last two games: 2 goals, 0 assists
