Soccer Duo Named Players of the Week
Conway - Coastal Carolina’s impressive 2-0 win over South Carolina was also impressive enough for two Chanticleers to be named the Sun Belt Conference’s players of the week.
For the second consecutive week Braulio Linares-Ortiz was named one of the Defensive Players of the Week, an honor he shares with Aldair Cortes of Georgia Southern.
Linares-Ortiz picked up his second shutout of the season in the win as he played all 90 minutes of the match, facing four shots on goal and picking up four saves.
On the season Linares-Ortiz has played 759 minutes in goal with 32 saves. He has only allowed 11 goals and has a 1.30 goals against average. He also has a .744 save percentage.
Konstantinos Louvaris picked up a goal against the Gamecocks in the 12th minute of action, and it turned out to be the match-winner. Louvaris was voted as the Sun Belt’s Offensive Player of the Week.
Louvaris played 64 minutes in the match with two shots, and both were on goal. The goal was his first of the season.
