Corder Earns Second Big Ten Award of Season

By NU Athletic Communications

For the second time in three weeks, junior Aubrei Corder collected Big Ten Goalkeeper-of-the-Week honors. Corder previously took home the award on Sept. 18.

Corder, a Barboursville, W.Va., native, tallied a career-high nine saves in Nebraska’s 1-0 win at 24th-ranked Penn State on Thursday night. It marked her third complete-game shutout of the season and 21st shutout of her career, which ranks third in program history.

On Sunday, Corder played all 110 minutes of the Huskers’ 1-1 tie at Ohio State. She recorded three saves to increase her career total to 169, which ranks fourth in school history. Corder ranks second in the nation in goalkeeper minutes played this season (1300:44), behind only Towson’s Megan Collins (1304:58).

Nebraska’s four-point weekend (three points for a win, one point for a tie) extended the team’s unbeaten streak to seven consecutive games (five wins and two ties). The Huskers lead the Big Ten with 14 points and have the best RPI in the conference with the No. 17 ranking.

Corder ranks among the top five in program history in goalkeeper wins (fifth, 28), minutes played by a goalkeeper (third, 5,252), games played by a goalkeeper (third, 55) and games started by a goalkeeper (third, 55).
