Juan Cervantes Named Pac-12 Player of the Week
By: UCLA Athletics

Sept. 4, 2012

Walnut Creek, Calif. - UCLA freshman goalkeeper Juan Cervantes was named the Pac-12 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, as announced by the conference today.

Cervantes, a native of Gardena, Calif., filled in for injured starter Earl Edwards and allowed only two goals in his first two career starts over the weekend. The freshman helped the Bruins preserve a tie on Friday at No. 6 Maryland by making five saves, including a game-saving stop in the third minute of overtime, in front of a hostile crowd of over 6,500. UCLA then faced Virginia on Sunday where Cervantes tallied three saves to earn his first career shutout in a 1-0 overtime win over the Cavaliers.

This is Cervantes' first-career weekly honor and UCLA's 47th all-time player of the week, the most in the Conference.

The Bruins will host two non-conference matches this weekend, playing Tulsa on Friday, Sept. 7 at 4:30 pm and No. 11 UC Irvine on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 2 pm. Both matches will be played at Drake Stadium and will be broadcast live by the Pac-12 Networks.

Also Nominated: Khiry Shelton, OSU; Blake Hylen SDSU; Adam Jahn STAN; Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, WASH
