Washington's Heard voted men's soccer Player of the Week
SAN FRANCISCO - The Pac-12 Conference announced WASHINGTON’s Josh Heard as the Pac-12 Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for games from Sept. 22-28.
Heard (Vancouver, B.C.) played a part in both goals in Washington’s 2-1 overtime victory over Portland. The junior blasted home a Darwin Jones-cross early in the second half to give the Huskies a 1-0 lead. Portland later tied the game to send it to overtime, but Heard sent in a pass across goal to Cristian Roldan, who finished it for the game-winning score. Heard now has five goals and an assist this season for the Huskies, who have won six games in a row.
The honor is Heard’s first of his career and Washington’s 30th all-time player of the week selection.
The Huskies begin Conference play at home this week and take on CALIFORNIA on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. PT, before taking on STANFORD at 5 p.m. PT on Sunday, Oct. 5. Both games will appear on Pac-12 Networks. For more information and to view the 2014 television schedule, visit www.pac-12.com.
