UCLA MIDFIELDER MIKE ENFIELD
NAMED PAC-10 MEN'S SOCCER PLAYER OF THE WEEK
UCLA senior midfielder Mike Enfield has been named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 14-20.
Enfield, from Ventura, Calif., scored two goals off headers in UCLA's 3-1 comeback win over Cal State Northridge on Sept. 17. The senior scored in the 66th minute to even the score at 1-1, then added his second goal, the game-winner, in the 85th minute. In the Bruins' scoreless tie against Loyola Marymount on Sept. 19 at the Home Depot Center, he had two shots.
Enfield's multiple goal performance against Cal State Northridge was the first of his career. He now leads the team in scoring with three goals, which equals his career total entering the season. UCLA (4-1-1) travels to Cal State Fullerton this week before opening Pac-10 play against Oregon State on Oct. 1.
This is the first weekly honor for Enfield, and the 18th all-time player of the week honor for the Bruins.
