Stanford's Lamming Named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week
Sept. 22, 2009
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- STANFORD junior midfielder Cameron Lamming has been named Pac-10 Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 16-22, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Last week at the Bay Area Classic, Lamming led the Cardinal to a pair of victories over Santa Clara and San Francisco. In Thursday’s 2-0 win over the Broncos, Lamming played an integral part of Stanford’s defensive efforts to keep Santa Clara scoreless over 90 minutes. Against the Dons on Sunday, he scored a golden goal in the first overtime to break a scoreless tie versus USF, the defending WCC Champion. Just 1:45 into overtime, the San Juan Capistrano, Calif., native took the ball in the midfield, beat a defender and made a shot into the top right corner to score his first-career goal. The win gave Stanford its fourth win of the season, matching last year’s win total.
As a member of the Cardinal midfield, Lamming has helped increase Stanford’s scoring from 0.78 in 2008 to 1.80 thus far in 2009. He has also been responsible for getting back on defense, where the Cardinal have lowered its goals against average from 1.17 in 2008 to 0.80 in 2009.
This is the first-career weekly honor for Lamming and Stanford’s 11th all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week.
