Two players from Marquette take home BIG EAST Men's Soccer weekly honors, as freshman David Check was named BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week and freshman Sebastian Jansson earned BIG EAST Rookie of the Week. St. John's Connor Lade was tabbed the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week and USF's Dom Dwyer earned his second-straight BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week honor.
Check made 10 saves on the week, with a .909 save percentage and 0.50 goals against average as MU knocked off a pair of nationally ranked conference opponents. Check posted a 1-0 shutout over No. 12/13 Notre Dame before helping the Golden Eagles to a 2-1 decision over No. 23/24 West Virginia. MU is off to its best start in conference history at 5-0-0 to lead the Blue Division.
Jansson scored both game-winning goals in Marquette's back-to-back wins over nationally ranked conference opponents last week. He scored the Golden Eagles' lone goal in a 1-0 win vs. No. 12/13 Notre Dame and netted the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory against No. 23/24 West Virginia.
Lade anchored a defensive line that surrendered just one goal and allowed a combined eight shots on goal in a pair of BIG EAST victories. After limiting Syracuse to four shots on goal in a 2-1 win, Lade and the back line held a Louisville team that entered the night averaging 19.1 shots per game to just seven shots, four on net, in a 1-0 win.
Dwyer earns BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second-straight week after he helped lead USF to a 2-0 record last week, scoring three goals. He netted a goal in a 2-0 win against DePaul before scoring twice in a 3-2 comeback victory against Syracuse, including the gamewinner three minutes into overtime. The Bulls remain unbeaten in league play at 4-0-1 to lead the Red Division.
