CCU Soccer Sweeps Weekly Honors; Again
Conway - For the third time this season, and second consecutive week, Coastal Carolina has swept the weekly men’s soccer awards announced by the Sun Belt Conference office late Tuesday afternoon.
The two players received their honors based on the Chanticleers upset road win over #2/3 ranked Maryland.
Frantzdy Pierrot was named the co-offensive player of the week along with Jamie O’Grady from Hartwick.
Pierrot scored the lone goal in the 1-0 win in the eighth minute of the match. It was a show-stopping goal as he was able to gather a throw-in from Ryan Willougby and send a bike kick into the left side of the net just out of reach of the diving Maryland goalie.
It was Pierrot’s fourth goal of the season and his first match-winner this year.
Braulio Linares-Ortiz was again named the conference’s defensive player of the week. It is the third time this season he has received the weekly honor.
Linares-Ortiz was in goal all 90 minutes of the match against the Terps. He had three saves in the match earning his third complete shutout of the season.
He now has 46 total saves on the season and a .742 saves percentage while playing a little over 1,110 minutes in goal.
