SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara University senior Peter Lowry was named West Coast Conference Player of the Week for the second time on Tuesday. Lowry scored a goal and notched two assists to lead SCU to wins over San Diego and Loyola Marymount over the weekend. Santa Clara has now gone unbeaten in 13 straight games.
Against San Diego on Nov. 2, Lowry set up Stephen McCarthy for the tying goal with a nifty pass inside the box. He then ripped a free kick off the crossbar in the second half and Brian Martin put away the rebound for the winning goal. The win gave SCU sole possession of first place in the conference. Two days later, Lowry netted a penalty kick in the first half, helping the Broncos to a 3-1 win, stretching the team's unbeaten run to 13 games.
Lowry now has seven goals and two assists on the season to lead the conference in goals.
Earlier this year, Lowry was named WCC September Player of the Month, as well as Top Drawer Soccer, College Soccer News and WCC Player of the Week. He was a member of the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy Watch list in the preseason.
Santa Clara is now 11-1-4 on the season with two important conference matches this weekend. The Broncos travel to San Francisco on Friday, Nov. 9 to take on the Dons at Negoesco Stadium at 7 p.m. PT. Two days later, SCU faces Saint Mary's on Senior Night at Buck Shaw Stadium. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. PT Sunday night.
