EDISON, NJ - Iona College men's soccer junior midfielderAlvaro Torrecilla has been named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference's Offensive Player of the Week for his performances against La Salle and Mount St. Mary's.

Torrecilla's standout performance at the Puma Lafayette Classic earned him a spot on the All-Tournament Team, as he helped lead the Gaels to the in-season tournament championship.  The Spanish transplant recorded the second multi-goal game of his career with two tallies in a 4-3 overtime win over the Mountaineers.  Torrecilla scored once in the second half and knocked in the deciding goal in the 97th minute.  He led all players with four shots on goal in the contest.

This is the third weekly award for Iona this season, during which the Gaels have gotten off to a 4-0 start in non-conference play.
