Sherle Garners Weekly Honor
Oct. 23, 2017

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Boise State forward Raimee Sherle was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 16-22, the conference announced Monday. It is the second such honor of Sherle’s career, while it is the second time this season a Bronco has been recognized by the league (Janelle Flores – Sept. 18).

The sophomore played some of the best soccer of her career this past weekend in recording 11 points off of five goals and one assist to help the Broncos to a 3-1 victory over Nevada Friday followed by a 6-1 win against UNLV Sunday.

She earned a hat trick on Sunday with goals in the 1st, 9th and 74th minutes. Her first score came with 00:59 on the clock, good for the fourth-fastest goal to start a match in school history. The second goal came less than eight minutes later – 7:43, to be exact – which is the eighth fastest a Bronco player has ever scored consecutive goals.

She scored again in the second half and also assisted on a goal to bring her game point total to seven – the best individual offensive game for any Boise State player this season.

Sherle’s brace on Friday was a product of goals in the 35th and 53rd minutes, with fellow Treasure Valley native Aubree Chatterton assisting on both.

Now with 36 points and 15 goals on the season, Sherle leads the conference in both statistics. The two totals also puts her in a tie for No. 2 in the Bronco record book for a single season. In addition, her three multi-goal games this season are also tied for second in the school records.

The native of Meridian, Idaho tallied the game-winning goals in both games, as well, improving her school record mark to eight. The eight game-winning goals is also tied for No. 2 in the Mountain West single-season record book.

Boise State’s 6-1 result against the Rebels yesterday was the highest single-game offensive output since Oct. 8, 2010 when the Broncos scored six goals against New Mexico State.

Currently tied for third in the conference standings, Boise State guaranteed itself a spot in the Mountain West Tournament in Las Vegas (Oct. 31 – Nov. 4) for the second-straight year with yesterday’s win.

The Broncos could move into second place and earn the No. 2 seed with a win Friday (Oct. 27) at Utah State, along with some help from New Mexico and San Diego State.
