Nortey Garners National Recognition
Sept. 30, 2013
MILWAUKEE - Redshirt sophomore C. Nortey earned a spot on the BIG EAST Conference Men's Soccer Weekly Honor Roll and TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week for his game-winning goal in the Marquette University men's soccer team's victory at Xavier, the league announced Monday.
His golazo provided the lone tally in the Golden Eagles' 1-0 road win, helping Marquette win its fourth straight BIG EAST Conference opener. Nortey split a pair of Xavier defenders and his strike from 20 yards out beat the Musketeers goalkeeper top-shelf to break a scoreless tie in the 31st minute.
