Congratulations to former FirstPoint USA client, Patrick O'Neil who has been named the Sun Conference Defensive Player of the week for the week ending September 19th 2011.
The Northwood University (Florida Campus Seahawks) sophomore goalkeeper had a strong performance against Truett McConnell college (Bears) where he tallied 7 saves while only allowing 1 goal as the Seahawks were forced to play down a man for the entire second half due to a red card on Mayowa Tola-Isaac. The nationally ranked No. 17 Seahawks defeated the Bears by a score of 5-1.
"I am very happy for Pat," said head coach Ty Brewer. "Even though he did not have many saves to make, the ones he did were crucial. Also us having to play the entire second half down a man, put more pressure on him to keep us organized. The success of our team depends on players being ready when they are called upon, and Pat did just that!"
The Seahawks overall record improved to 4-0-1 on the year. The Seahawks will return to action on Sept. 25 when they travel to Savannah, Georgia to face the Bees of Savannah College of Art and Design at 3:30 p.m.
