WASHINGTON’S PEAY VOTED MEN’S SOCCER PLAYER OF THE WEEK
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - WASHINGTON senior Taylor Peay was voted Pac-12 men’s soccer Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 3-9, the Conference office announced today.
The defender from Salt Lake City, Utah, recorded four total goals over the course of the week, including a hat trick in the first half of the 4-1 victory over Santa Clara. Peay’s four goals came on only five shots for a .800 shooting percentage. The senior currently leads the Conference in points (8), points per game (2.67) and goals (4). His four total goals tie for third in the nation, and his points per game average is tied for seventh. He was also named to TopDrawerSoccer.com and College Soccer News’ national teams of the week.
This is Peay’s first-career weekly award in his time as a Husky. It is Washington’s 27th player of the week nod overall.
Washington heads to the East Coast this week to play Connecticut on Tuesday, Sept. 10, and Brown on Friday, Sept. 13.
Pac-12 Networks will feature Washington twice more this non-conference slate and will broadcast a total of 10 more matches for the Huskies. Pac-12 men’s soccer will have 28 matches overall air on the Pac-12 Networks. For the full television schedule, visit www.pac-12.com.
