Jarosz Named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week
Sept. 12, 2016
The Milwaukee native collected his first career BIG EAST weekly award after helping solidify a young backline that propelled the Golden Eagles to a 1-0-1 record last week against Northwestern and Saint Louis, while extending the team’s current unbeaten streak to four matches (3-0-1).
Marquette outscored the opposition 5-2 on the week with both goals allowed coming via penalties. Jarosz and the defense hasn’t allowed a goal in the run of play for over 289 minutes dating back to the first minute of a 4-1 win over UIC back on Sept. 2.
The 6-4 centerback also picked up his first career point, assisting on Connor Alba’s goal in the 67th minute to earn a 1-1 draw against Saint Louis on Saturday.
Jarosz and the Golden Eagles will be back in action on Wednesday at Valley Fields when they play host to archrival UW-Milwaukee in the 44th Annual Milwaukee Cup. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m.
