Defensive Player of the Week

Gordon College sophomore goalkeeper Alex Sosler (Willoughby, Ohio) has been named the ECAC Division III New England and The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts in net for the Fighting Scots soccer team this past week. This marks the third time this season he has received the honor from the TCCC.
Part of a strong defensive front which shut out one of the most potent offenses in the conference in Salve Regina, Sosler’s work between the pipes helped lead Gordon to a 1-0-1 performance last week and vault the Scots into third place in the conference standings. In Saturday’s TCCC quarterfinal match versus sixth-seeded Wentworth Institute, Sosler prevented the Leopards from scoring in 110 minutes of regulation and overtime and stopped two penalty kicks en route to the Scots’ 4-2 shootout victory.
In his last 750 minutes of play, Sosler has not allowed a single goal, giving him a .28 goals-against average and .926 save percentage.
