UCLA senior defender Jordan Harvey has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 27-Oct. 3, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Harvey, from Mission Viejo, Calif., scored two goals and contributed to two shutouts in last week's identical 2-0 victories over No. 3 California and Stanford. Harvey scored a goal with eight seconds left to seal the Bruins' upset win over the Golden Bears on Friday, before scoring the game-winning goal against Stanford in the 34th minute two days later.
On the defensive side, his contributions helped UCLA record its fifth and sixth shutouts of the season. UCLA's defense held California to 11 shots, five of which were on goal. Harvey and the Bruins only allowed two shots from Stanford, none on goal.
This is Harvey's first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor and 23rd weekly honor for UCLA.
In addition, Harvey was named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week, while teammate Marvell Wynne was selected to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. Wynne, a sophomore defender, scored the game-winning goal, the first of his career, against California.
As a team, UCLA is ranked No. 4 in the nation with a shutout percentage of 0.75. The Bruins have shut out four of their last five opponents and have not allowed a goal in four games at home. They also rank No. 17 in the country with a goals against average of 0.63, allowing single-digit shot totals in two of their last three games.
UCLA (2-0-0 in the Pac-10, 6-2-0 overall), ranked as high as sixth by Soccer America, continues Conference play at Washington on Fri., Oct. 7 and Oregon State on Sun., Oct. 9.
