Weinberg Named MPSF Player Of The Week

Oct 31, 2022

Cal junior goalie Adrian Weinberg has been named the MPSF Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.

Weinberg played a pivotal role in the No. 2 Bears' 10-9 overtime win at No. 1 UCLA on Saturday. He registered 14 saves and four steals, and anchored a defense that held the Bruins scoreless for 16 minutes, 17 seconds to help Cal erase an 8-5 deficit and force overtime.

Weinberg recorded crucial saves on the final possession of regulation and the second overtime to spark the victory, and also saved a UCLA penalty shot in the first overtime session.

This marks the second career MPSF Player of the Week honor for Weinberg and the second week in a row that a Cal player has garnered the honor. Sophomore attacker Max Casabella earned the award last week.

The Bears, who figure to move into the No. 1 spot in the CWPA Top-20 later this week, visit No. 14 San Jose State on Sunday at 12 p.m. PT.
