SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Gonzaga University senior defender Daniel Scott has been named the West Coast Conference Co-Player of the Month for men's soccer.
Scott, a native of Maui, Hawai'I, helped the Bulldogs to a 5-1-1 record in the month of September as Gonzaga returned to the national polls for the first time since 2001. Gonzaga was ranked as high as 12th by Soccer America.
Included in the wins was a 1-0 victory over defending national champion and top-ranked UC Santa Barbara. He was named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week for his efforts in Gonzaga winning the Stephen Hensor/Joe Zaher Classic at Oregon State University. He contributed a team save in 1-0 win over Northern Illinois in the winner-take-all match on Sunday, and helped shut down previously undefeated Loyola in 2-1 win in the opener. Loyola's big guns, Phil Bannister, who had four goals and an assist entering the match, was held without a shot, and Eddie Dines, who had three goals entering the weekend, had one shot that sailed high.
The Bulldogs had two shutouts for the month and posted a 0.69 GAA.
Peter Lowry of Santa Clara University was the other recipient. He scored a conference-best five goals in the month, including a pair of match winners.
