In Friday’s 1-0 win over Oregon, Dahlkemper helped the Bruins defense hold the Ducks to just two shots on goal. She also set up the game-winner by getting a head on a cross that was going out of bounds and sending the ball back toward the front of the goal where Kylie McCarthy put it in.
Dahlkemper (Menlo Park, Calif/Sacred Heart Prep/ MVLA Avalanche) nearly got a goal of her own in the 52nd minute, however her header was cleared off the line by an Oregon defender.
On Sunday, the Bruins held Oregon State to just three shots in a 1-0 win.
