Borja Angoitia Earns Second Straight MAAC Defensive Player of the Week Award

EDISON, N.J. – For the second consecutive week, junior Borja Angoitia (Bilbao, Spain) has been named the MAAC Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, announced Monday, Sept. 23, 2013 by the league's office. Angoitia was sensational in Quinnipiac's lone game last week, helping the Bobcats to a 0-0 draw through double overtime against Army.

Angoitia, a 6-2 goalkeeper from Bilbao, Spain, recorded his second consecutive shutout last Wednesday (9/18), as the Bobcats battled Army to a scoreless draw at the QU Soccer Field. Angoitia recorded a season-high 10 saves and garnered his eighth career shutout. He hasn't allowed a goal in over 207 minutes  of action, dating back to Quinnipiac's game against Loyola (Md.) on September 11, 2013.

 Angoitia's eight shutouts have him in sole possession of second place all-time for the category, and his 17 career wins are good enough for third all-time in that category. He is also third all-time in goals against average (1.33). Angoitia has a 1.05 goals against average and a .811 save percentage through six games this year.

The Bobcats are back in action on Tuesday, Sept. 24 with its final game of their current four-game home stand. Quinnipiac welcomes instate foe Hartford for a 4 p.m. start at the QU Soccer Field on Mount Carmel Campus.
