Porpora named CCC Defensive Player of the Week
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Nichols College men's soccer junior goaltender Patrick Porpora (Westminster, Mass.) has been named the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Defensive Player of the Week.
This is the second time in Porpora's collegiate career that he has been named the CCC Defensive Player of the Week (10/3/16).
"After a rocky start, we have found our defense, beginning with Pat," said Nichols head coach Chris Traina. "He came up with several key saves in our last two matches, locking down two clean sheets. We look to hopefully continue this momentum."
Porpora posted identical stat lines in Nichols's two non-conference victories this week. He made five saves in a shutout victory over Elms on Thursday (Sept. 7) before stopping five more shots for another clean sheet against New England College on Saturday (Sept. 9).
The Bison look to make it three wins in a row as they travel to Buzzards Bay to take on Mass. Maritime on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
