Player of the Week: David Loera, NC State

Friday night was the big one for NC State. A win would go a long way in boosting the team’s RPI, and Loera’s second-half winner proved to be enough for a 1-0 victory.

Team of the Week: October 8-14

GK Adrian Fernandez, Oregon State – With six saves, Fernandez kept a clean sheet in Oregon State’s 1-0 win against Stanford. He also made one save in a 2-1 home win over California.

D Patrick Hogan, Charlotte – Hogan played the full 90 in a 3-0 win against Florida International on Sunday, leading the team to its seventh shutout of the season. He also scored in Charlotte’s 2-1 mid-week loss against Radford.
