Duncan McGuire’s first goal was admittedly impressive: a dart behind a defender followed by a calm finish despite a tricky angle. The second, though, was spectacular. He ran down the middle of the pitch, relatively unmarked, before receiving the ball 18 yards from goal.

And as two defenders approached, McGuire made his move, sliding past one before cutting past the other, topping it all off with a clipped finish over an approaching goalkeeper. They were McGuire’s 20th and 21st goals of the season, the continuation of a remarkable campaign. And thanks to his play, there could be a few more games to come.

For the third time this season, McGuire is the TDS Player of the Week as the Third Round of the NCAA Tournament approaches.
