Nortey Receives Conference, National Recognition
Sept. 26, 2011
MILWAUKEE - Marquette University men's soccer freshman C. Nortey received BIG EAST Rookie of the Week honors while also being named to College Soccer News' National Team of the Week on Monday afternoon.
Nortey scored two goals, including the game-winner in the 87th minute, as Marquette came from behind twice to win 3-2 at Syracuse University on Sept 24. In the match against the Orange, Nortey scored on both shots he took and improved his shot percentage to .385. The late goal was Nortey's fifth on the season, and first collegiate game-winner, as MU won its BIG EAST opener for the second straight year.
The freshman forward was also named Marquette's Student-Athlete of the Week.
MU has now won two in a row heading into Wednesday's non-conference tilt at in-state rival Wisconsin. Kickoff against the Badgers is set for 7 p.m. CT at McClimon Complex and can be heard on WMUR Marquette Radio.
