For her recently concluded record-setting week for the Ohio State women’s soccer program, senior forward Tiffany Cameron has been named the Big Ten Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week.
Cameron posted a four-goal week in games against then-No. 17 Michigan and Michigan State, scoring two goals in each game.
Two goals in a 3-1 upset win against the Wolverines on Thursday allowed Cameron to set the program’s single-season record. During her final regular season home game donning Scarlet and Gray, Cameron scored two more goals to extend her single-season scoring record to 16 and pull into a tie for most career goals with 35.
Cameron, a Canadian international player, tied former Buckeyes Lara Dickenmann and Lisa Grubb for OSU’s career-goals record with her second tally in the 3-1 win against the Spartans.
Cameron will have an opportunity to break the career-goals record in the Buckeyes’ final regular season game at Indiana, but will have her work cut out for her as the Hoosiers defense has posted six shutouts this season.
The game against the Hoosiers (9-8-1, 4-6-0 Big Ten) kicks off Friday at 7 p.m in Bloomington, Ind.
