Jourdan Brill named to all-tournament team

Senior midfielder Jouran Brill, who recently began her senior year at Temple, walked away from the Fairfield Inn by Marriot tournament in Harrisonburg, Va. from Aug. 24-26 with a spot on the all-tournament team.

“I am going to be completely honest, I had no idea that there even was an all-tournament team for that tournament,” Brill said. “I knew I played two good games, but I had no idea. I was really excited and really surprised.”

With three of Temple’s 13 total shots in the tournament, Brill also added the team’s only goal of the weekend in the 3-1 loss against Hofstra, eventually earning her the honor of all-tournament team.

“I actually found out from my teammates on the bus after the tournament was over that I was named to the all-tournament team,” Brill said.

Although Temple lost both matches of the weekend, Brill said that her most memorable moment of the tournament was leading nationally ranked Hofstra 1-0 for most of the first half.

“She was fantastic, very competitive, and did everything we asked of her,” coach Matt Gwilliam said. “She truly earned it and I am happy for her.”
