Barraza Named BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week
Sept. 19, 2016
Official BIG EAST Release
Barraza made seven saves against the Johnnies on Saturday en route to his fifth career clean sheet and the all important point in the standings to begin league play. It was the Santa Teresa, N.M., native’s third career BIG EAST weekly award, including his second as Goalkeeper of the Week, and first this season. The stellar performance ran his record to 1-1-2 on the season.
The sophomore hasn’t allowed a goal since an 86th minute penalty in a 1-1 draw at Saint Louis back on Sept. 10. In fact, his previous two goals allowed have come via penalty kicks, giving him a 326-minute streak without allowing a goal in the run of play. His last goal allowed in the run of play was a first-minute tally surrendered during a 4-1 win over UIC on the road.
The Golden Eagles boast a six-match unbeaten streak (3-0-3) heading into another BIG EAST showdown on Saturday, Sept. 24, as they play host to Villanova at Valley Fields at 7:05 p.m.
