For the second week in a row, the Southern Oregon men’s soccer team produced one of the Cascade Collegiate Conference’s Red Lion Players of the Week – this time Gonzalo Garcia, a junior from Stockton, Calif.
Garcia, named the conference’s defensive player of the week, was a key player on the back line as the Raiders turned in two more clean sheets. They won 2-0 on Saturday, Sept. 29, against Northwest Christian and 0-0 on Sunday, Sept. 30, against No. 18-ranked Corban. He also assisted Noah Addie’s 57th-minute header that turned into the game-winner against NCU, his team-leading fourth assist of the season.
SOU’s Mitchell Pinney, a senior forward from Hockinson, Wash., was voted the Cascade Collegiate Conference Offensive Player of the Week the previous week.
The Raiders (8-2-1 overall, 5-0-1 CCC) extended their team-record unbeaten streak to nine games, seven of which have been shutouts. They remained tied in first place with Corban, becoming the first team to blank the Warriors this season.
This week, they’ll play Friday, Oct. 5, at Multnomah and Saturday, Oct. 6, at Warner Pacific.
