Stanford's Meyer voted men's soccer player of the week
SAN FRANCISCO - The Pac-12 Conference announced STANFORD’s Austin Meyer as the Pac-12 Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for games from Nov. 10-16.
Meyer (Santa Rosa, Calif.) punched in the game-winning goal to help Stanford knock off No. 15 CALIFORNIA 3-2 in double overtime. After UCLA won its final game over San Diego State, Stanford entered overtime needing a win to clinch as Pac-12 champions. Meyer’s goal sealed the first Cardinal Pac-12 title since 2001. It was his second goal of the season, with his other score also being an overtime winner against San Diego State on Nov. 2.
The honor is Meyer’s first and is Stanford’s 21st all-time player of the week selection.
Stanford earned a bid to compete in the 2014 NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament as a No. 6 seed and will host the winner of UNLV and UC Irvine at Stanford on Nov. 23, where the Cardinal has yet to lose this season. Stanford has an all-time record of 16-11-2 in the Tournament and its highest finish came in 2002 when it finished runner-up to champion UCLA.
