SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for September 28, 2015. 

WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – PAUL CHRISTENSEN, SO., GK - PORTLAND
Sophomore goalkeeper Paul Christensen recorded nine saves and registered his second straight shutout against a top-10 opponent as the Pilots earned a scoreless draw on the road at No. 10 Washington on Sunday. The nine saves match a career-high and the blank sheet comes on the heels of a 1-0 shutout of No. 8 Oregon State on Sept. 17. Christensen withstood a steady barrage of shots against the Huskies, coming through repeatedly with clutch save after clutch save. A handful of his saves came in the final minutes of the second OT to preserve the shutout. 

Also Nominated: Carlos Delgadillo, Santa Clara
