Leo Stolz Earns More Weekly Honors after Big Weekend
By: UCLA Athletics

After picking up National Team of the Week honors from College Soccer News yesterday, junior midfielder Leo Stolz earned more weekly honors today, being named to Top Drawer Soccer's National Team of the Week in addition to receiving Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.

On Friday against UC Santa Barbara, Stolz scored the only goal of the match, dribbling approximately 60 yards through the Gaucho defense to pick up his first goal of the year. He followed that up with a stellar performance on Sunday against San Diego, notching a goal and an assist to give the Bruins a 3-2 victory in overtime. Stolz scored UCLA’s first goal in the 38th minute to tie the match at, 1-1, before setting up Brian Iloski’s go-ahead goal in the 43rd minute with a great pass on a give-and-go. Stolz was also heavily involved in the San Diego own goal in overtime that ended the match, as he attempted to cross the ball to the far post in the box before a Torero defender knocked the ball into the net. Overall, Stolz leads the Bruins with five points on the year.

The Pac-12 Player of the Week honor is Stolz’ first-career weekly accolade and marks UCLA’s 51st player of the week overall. 

UCLA (3-1-1) will play two key road matches this week, facing UC Irvine (3-1-2) on Thursday, Sept. 19 before taking on third-ranked Cal State Northridge (6-0-0) on Sunday, Sept. 22. Both matches will be at 7 p.m.
