The Fort Lauderdale, Fla. native returned from injury this past week and helped lead the Panthers to a pair of victories.

The two wins also helped the Panthers earn a spot in the SSC Championships. In two games last week, Kantor made 10 total saves and did not allow a goal in two shutouts.

The clean sheets increased Kantor’s season total to seven on the season, and lowered her goals-against-average to 0.71. Barry’s Lavina Nkomo was named the SSC Offensive Player of the Week.

Kantor and the Panthers will travel to Saint Leo on Tuesday for a quarterfinal match in the SSC Women’s Soccer Championships. The match gets underway at 7:00 p.m. ET at University Field in Saint Leo.
