Two Mustangs made headlines this week in men’s and women’s soccer.
We start with our American Athletic Conference rookie of the week Benjamin Joseph. He received this after his performance in the Mustangs’ 2-0 win over Oral Roberts on Friday.
Joseph was the one to score the match winning shot and his first career tally which came in the 43rd minute. The win against Oral Roberts pushed the Mustangs to 3-3 on the 2014 season.
To the women’s team. Mustang first-year Lauren Guerra was named the American Athletic Conference’s Rookie of the Week.
Guerra scored both goals in the Mustangs’ 2-1 overtime victory over Gonzaga on Sunday afternoon. She first recorded a goal in the 72nd minute to tie the game at 1-1 and went on to tally the game-winner in the first overtime period.
Guerra now leads the Mustangs in scoring for the season with three goals.
