Washington's Casey Armstrong Named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week

Sept. 9, 2003

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.- Washington forward Casey Armstrong has been named Pac-10 Men's soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 2- Sept. 8, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Armstrong, a junior from Kent, Wash., scored to lift Washington over Northwest rival Portland, 1-0, in the Huskies home opener Sept. 5. His header off a right-side cross from Leo Totev in the 56th minute proved to be the game-winner. Armstrong, who scored the first game-winning goal of his career, was a late first-half substitution by Head Coach Dean Wurzbergerger.

The victory improved Washington's record to 2-0-1 this season. The Huskies, whose lone tie is to No. 20 Oakland University (NSCAA/Adidas), have a week off and return to action on Sept. 19 against Michigan.

This is Armstrong's first weekly honor and Washington's sixth all-time Player of the Week.

2003 PAC-10 PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: Sept 2- Matt Taylor, Sr. F, UCLA. Sept. 9- Casey Armstrong, Jr. F, WASH
