    Hawaii’s Sonest Furtado earned Big West offensive honors after compiling two goals and an assist on her team’s 2-0 road trip to Arizona State and Grand Canyon.

For the first time since joining the Big West in 2012, Hawaii swept the conference’s offensive and defensive player of the week awards in women’s soccer today.

Senior forward Sonest Furtado earned offensive honors after compiling two goals and an assist on her team’s 2-0 road trip to Arizona State and Grand Canyon, while goalkeeper Alexis Mata netted the defensive award for her 13 combined saves in the 1-0 overtime win at ASU on Friday and the 2-1 decision at GCU on Sunday.

Mata picked up the defensive award for the second straight week, another first for UH (5-4).

Furtado, a Waianae High product, has scored or assisted on the last five goals for the Rainbow Wahine.

Going back to the finale of its previous road trip, UH won three straight on the mainland for the first time since 2004. The Wahine concluded nonconference play and open Big West play at UC Davis on Sept. 28.
