Sosler and Porizky Honored by TCCC

As announced by The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC), Gordon sophomore goalkeeper Alex Sosler (Willoughby, Ohio) and sophomore runner Josh Porizky (Groton, Connecticut) have been named the Defensive Player of the Week and Runner of the Week, respectively, for their competitive efforts this past week.

Sosler (pictured top, left)posted a pair of shutouts as Gordon went 2-0 on the week, recording three saves in a TCCC win over Endicott College and four saves in a 1-0 blank of the former TCCC leader, Nichols College. On the season, Sosler has turned away 30 shots and allowed just four goals in nearly 830 minutes of play, giving him a .882 save percentage.

Leading all TCCC runners in the James Earley Invitational at Westfield State University on October 9, Porizky (pictured bottom left) completed the 8K course in just 26:22, good enough to place eighth out of 288 scoring runners. In doing so, he carried the Fighting Scots to a 10th place finish out of the 26-team field. Head coach Andy Shaw said of Porizky, “Coaches don't always have the honor of working with athletes who are highly talented, hardworking, while at the same time humble. Josh has a great combination of these qualities, and it shows with the success he has enjoyed so far this season.”

Men’s soccer played to a 0-0 draw with Colby-Sawyer College on Tuesday, October 12, and will return to action on Saturday, October 16 as they travel to face Western New England College. Cross-country will take to the trails once again on October 23 as they host their second home meet of the season, the Gordon Invitational.
