Sundly Named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - CALIFORNIA freshman forward/midfielder Alec Sundly was named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 9-15, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
The Capistrano Beach, Calif., native picked an opportune time to score his first goals as a Golden Bear, scoring twice in Cal's 3-2 victory over Stanford on Thursday. The win gave the Bears their third Pac-10 title in five years and clinched the Conference's automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. Sundly scored his first collegiate goal in the 34th minute, heading in a corner kick, then scored the gamewinner on a 25-yard blast in the 83rd minute.
This is Sundly's first career weekly honor and Cal's 20th all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week.
The No. 6 Bears earned the sixth seed in the 2010 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship. Cal received a first-round bye and will host the winner of the Denver-UC Santa Barbara match in the second round on Sunday, November 21, at 1:30 p.m. PT at Edwards Stadium.
Also Nominated: Brian Rowe, UCLA; Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, WASH
