Watkins Earns Player Of The Week Honors

November 2, 2009

Middlebury College men's soccer player Harrison Watkins (San Francisco, Calif.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. The junior had a big week for the Panthers, scoring all three goals in a 2-0 week. Watkins opened the week by scoring the game's lone goal on a header in a 1-0 win over Williams on Friday. In a NESCAC quarterfinal win over Amherst, Watkins scored both goals, including the game-winner with less than a minute to go as the Panthers knocked off the Jeffs. On defense, Watkins helped lead the Middlebury defense to just one goal allowed over 180 minutes of action.

Watkins and the Panthers will travel to Wesleyan this weekend for a NESCAC semifinal game on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
