Pac-12 announces Men's Soccer Player of the Week
THIS WEEK: Andrew Thomas, R-So., GK, Stanford (London, England)
• Andrew Thomas pitched his seventh and eighth solo shutouts of the season to keep Stanford's hopes of a sixth consecutive Pac-12 title alive.
• The redshirt sophomore made four stops in a scoreless draw with Oregon State on Thursday night, including one that saved the game in the first overtime, A Beaver cross slid through three Stanford defenders and found the Beavers' Eric Diaz with an opening at the near post that Thomas batted away.
• He followed that up with another shutout and five saves in Stanford's 1-0 win at No. 1 Washington on Sunday.
• Thomas, who entered the weekend 13th in the country with a 0.693 goals against average, lowered that number to 0.60 with the two clean sheets.
• Thomas' 19 solo shutouts in less than two years of action are already fourth in the Cardinal's career record books.
• This is Thomas’ first-career weekly honor and Stanford’s 38th all-time.
Also nominated: Arnaud Deniel, OSU; Alonzo Del Mundo, CAL.
