SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Gonzaga junior midfielder Colton Cavey has been named the West Coast Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.

Cavey scored two goals and added an assist in weekend victories over No. 16 Seattle and an Oral Roberts team receiving votes in the latest NSCAA rankings.

Against the Redhawks, Cavey hit the game-winner to break a 2-2 tie in the 71st minute after 16th-ranked Seattle came back from a 0-2 deficit to tie the game. He also assisted on Gonzaga’s first goal of the game, sending a long ball ahead to teammate Denis Kalamar, who found Graison Le for the goal. In Friday’s win against Oral Roberts, the midfielder played a crucial role in preserving the 1-0 win with his play on the pitch.

On the week, Cavey played 174 of 180 minutes over the two games and helped Gonzaga start unbeaten through four games for the first time since 1997.

Also Nominated: Alvaro Madrigal, Loyola Marymount; Erik Edwards, Portland; Leon Schwarzer, San Francisco; Yoshi Chaffin, Santa Clara
