DAHLONEGA, GA - Emily Dover has been named the Moe's Southwest Grill North Georgia Athlete of the Week after the senior was unstoppable in a pair of games last week, scoring three goals and adding two assists as North Georgia captured two more wins and remained unbeaten on the young season.

In a victory over Alabama-Huntsville, Dover scored a pair of goals and had a hat trick in hand before playing off a perfect pass in the final minutes of the game to pick up an assist.

She then led the Lady Saints into Peach Belt Conference action at USC Aiken and tallied a goal in the 50th minute and an assist in the 11th minute as North Georgia handed the Pacers their first loss of the year.

Dover currently leads the Lady Saints with eight points on the year and the Canton, Georgia, native has tallied 15 shots in the last three games.

The Lady Saints will face their biggest test of the season on Saturday afternoon, playing host to unbeaten and 15th-ranked UNC Pembroke at the North Georgia Soccer Complex. The battle for first place in the Peach Belt Conference is slated for 1:00 p.m.
