The past week was full of "primetime" games and moments through collegiate women's soccer, with the Division I round-of-16 games being contested while Divisions II and III both played their round-of-16 and quarterfinal rounds. For the first time in the two-year history of its weekly awards, CollegeSoccer360.com is honoring Primetime Performers of the Week from each of the three NCAA divisions – with the top honors going to Notre Dame senior midfielder Rose Augustin (D-I), Florida Tech junior goalkeeper Mist Eliasdottir (D-II) and William Smith senior forward Brelynn Nasypany (D-III).

Rose Augustin (Notre Dame)

Augustin (Silver Lake, Ohio) – one of nine Division I players with double-digit goals and assists this season (11G-10A) – scored the first Notre Dame goal and had primary assists on the next two (both via set plays), as the Irish won 4-1 at North Carolina to knock out one of the four #1 seeds. It marked the first time that UNC has allowed more than three goals in a game, during the 29 seasons of NCAA-sanctioned play in Division I women's soccer.

Eliasdottir (Keflavik, Iceland) played a lead role in unseeded Florida Tech moving on to the semifinals of the Division II championship, with a pair of penalty-kick advancements away from home: 1-1 at #17 Tampa (3-2 PKs) in the round-of-16 and 1-1 vs. Lenoir-Rhyne (5-4 PKs; also at Tampa) in the quarterfinals. The Icelandic 'keeper stopped 7-of-8 shots she faced in the Tampa game (also dealing with 17 total shots and six corner kicks) before adding a pair of stops in the shootout, as Florida Tech overcame a 2-1 PK deficit. Two days later, Eliasdottir added four saves in regulation/OT, made a round-2 PK save and then took off the gloves to convert a PK try of her own in round-6 (4-4; the Panthers went on to win the shootout in rd-7).

Nasypany head 105

Brelynn Nasypany (Williams Smith)

Naspypany similarly has led her team to a relatively surprising appearance in the national semifinals, as #10 Williams Smith is one of four teams left standing in Division III – following a 2-1 win over #13 Oneanta State in the round-of-16 and a 1-0 battle vs. #9 Williams in the quarterfinals. Nasypany had the primary assist on Chelsea England's goal that ended up providing the final margin vs. Oneanta – and she scored the only goal (65') in the thriller vs. Williams, sending the Herons on to San Antonio for a title quest while also making
Aliceann Wilber the winningest coach (423-120-49; .756; ) in Division III women's soccer history (spanning 31 seasons, all with Williams Smith).
