Two days after netting the game-winning goal against VCU, NC State women's soccer forward Jameese Joseph was named TopDrawerSoccer's National Player of the Week on Tuesday morning.

Joseph, a 2022 MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List honoree and Preseason All-ACC Team member, logged a goal and an assist between NC State's two matches over its opening week. The Beltsville, Maryland native opened her 2022 campaign with an assist against Rhode Island, threading a pass behind the Rams' back line to Leyah Hall-Robinson for NC State's second of four goals in a 4-0 victory.

The senior then tallied her first goal of the season in the 87th minute on Sunday, collecting a through ball from Alexis Strickland before striding into the box and finishing with a right-footed shoot into the bottom-right corner of the goal. Joseph's goal lifted NC State to a 2-1 victory over VCU.
