BOULDER-Freshman Lizzy Herzl was named Big 12 Conference Co-Newcomer of the Week and freshman Alex Dohm was named to the CollegeSoccer360.com Primetime Performer of the Week team following their efforts in the 1-0 double-overtime win over No. 10 UCLA in the Omni Hotels Colorado Soccer Classic Sunday.

Dohm tends to play at the forward position and Herzl is usually seen on the defensive end of the field, but head coach Bill Hempen decided to change their roles on Sunday, and it paid off.

Herzl entered the game for the first time at the start of the first overtime period and at forward, a position she had never played while at CU. Her role was to add some fresh speed to the offense, but she went above and beyond as she surprised everyone and scored the game-winner on the first shot she's attempted this season to clinch the win over the Bruins.

Dohm's role during the game against UCLA was to defend the Bruins' leading scorer Sydney Leroux. The pressure she put on Leroux limited the All-America standout to only two shots on goal in 108 minutes.

This is the 12th Big 12 Newcomer of the Week accolade received by Colorado soccer, the last one earned by Kelly Menachof on Oct. 14, 2008.

Dohm is only the second player in the history of the program to earn a CS360 Primetime Performer of the Week honor as former standout Nikki Marshall earned the same recognition on Oct. 14, 2009.
