ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Guiding the UCF women's soccer team to a 1-0-1 record over the weekend with a tie at Arizona and a 5-0 victory over No. 19 Arizona State, the Knights picked up a few honors Monday. Junior keeper Aline Reis (Campinas, Brazil) was selected as the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week (shared with Colorado College's Caitlin Hulyo) and sophomore forward Tishia Jewell (Satellite Beach, Fla.) earned the C-USA Offensive Player of the Week award as well as a spot on the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Team of the Week.

In three years, Reis has been selected as the C-USA Defensive Player of the Week six times, while it was the first offensive accolade for Jewell. With a national team of the week award, Jewell became the fourth different Knight (Reis, Stacie Hubbard and Becca Thomas) to receive a national weekly honor in the last two seasons.

Reis accumulated 14 saves at the Arizona Tournament, playing every minute over the weekend to help UCF complete the non-conference portion of its schedule with a 5-2-1 record. In the 1-1 draw vs. Arizona, Reis made seven saves including four in overtime. She also recorded a save on a penalty-kick chance in the second half. Two days later against an undefeated Arizona State program, Reis registered seven more saves for her second shutout of the year. For her efforts she was named UCF's defensive MVP for the tournament.

On the attack, Jewell recorded five points including her first multi-goal game of her career. She opened up her weekend by playing 78 minutes of the double-overtime contest with Arizona, placing one of her two shots on goal. Jewell followed that up by helping UCF post one of its largest non-conference shutouts in program history, scoring two second-half goals and also adding an assist vs. the Sun Devils. Jewell now leads UCF with four goals, four assists, 12 points, 16 shots and eight shots on goal.

Reis, Jewell and the rest of the Knights return home this weekend to kick off the C-USA schedule when they host East Carolina Friday at 7 p.m. and Marshall Sunday at 1 p.m.
