SAU soccer has two picked
as players of the week
LAURINBURG — The St. Andrews University Men’s soccer team continues to reap the benefits of their big upset win in the conference quarterfinals as two of their players were announced yesterday as the Appalachian Athletic Conference players of the week.
Junior forward Caio Lima was chosen as the offensive player of the week for his goal in the win over Reinhardt and his goal in the upset win over Tennessee Wesleyan. Lima also scored a penalty kick in the shootout against Reinhardt. He is now second on the team with 10 goals on the year.
Freshman goalkeeper Leandro Custodio was then awarded the defensive player of the week for his outstanding goaltending in the two tournament wins. First against Reinhardt, Custodio held the Eagles to just two goals all game and then saved three shots out of five to help the Knights win the shootout 4-2. He also did not allow any goals in the 2-1 win against TWC as the only goal scored by the Bulldogs was when Custodio was hurt and out of the game. Custodio now has 98 saves on the year.
