Navarro Recognized For Outstanding Play
Nov. 26, 2013
MILWAUKEE-- Coco Navarro was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Men's Team of the Week, as well as the College Soccer News Team of the Week for his recent impressive feats. The Inglewood, Calif. native tallied the golden goal, in a 1-0 win against Akron in the second round of the NCAA tournament Sunday, at Valley Fields.
Navarro played every minute in Sunday's match, which consisted of the usual 90 minutes but also was accompanied by an overtime period as the two squads remained even at 0-0 after time had expired.
With only 25 seconds remaining in the first overtime period, Navarro received an excellent cross from teammate Paul Dillon. He then proceeded to knock a side volley past the Akron goalkeeper to propel MU to a 1-0 victory.
The freshman forward now has three goals on the season, two of which were game winners, along with five assists for the Golden Eagles.
