Munoz Earns Bank of the West Honors
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA sophomore midfielder Victor Munoz was named Bank of the West Pac-12 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of October 4-10, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
The sophomore transfer from Madrid, Spain, helped the Bruins improve to 4-0 in Pac-12 play with victories over Washington and Oregon State. In Friday's 4-1 win over the Huskies, Munoz played just 21 minutes, but recorded an assist on Victor Chavez's goal in the 88th minute. In Sunday's match against Oregon State, Munoz tallied one goal and one assist in 18 minutes of play. Munoz first set up Kelyn Rowe's game-tying goal in the 43rd minute before scoring the game-winning goal with 30 seconds left on the clock to give the Bruins the 2-1 win. He now has one goal and five assists on the season.
This is Munoz's first weekly honor and UCLA's 43rd all-time Player of the Week.
The Bruins host San Diego State on Sunday, October 16 at 5 p.m. PT.
Also Nominated: Emery Welshman, OSU; Miles Byass, SDSU; Michael Harris, WASH.
