FORT MYERS, Fla. – For his brick wall defensive efforts in goal at the Embassy Suites Kick-Off Classic over the weekend, redshirt junior goalkeeper Adam Glick (Leola, Pa./Conestoga Valley HS) earned his fourth career Atlantic Sun Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor, announced by the conference on Monday.
Glick had a great weekend, notching a couple of game-changing saves in 200 minutes of play over the two contests. Glick’s diving deflection on a Drexel penalty kick in the 107th minute of double-overtime helped FGCU fend off a heart-breaking loss and hold on for a 1-1 tie against the visiting Dragons Thursday night. On Saturday, Glick tallied four saves to pick up his 17th career victory in net and 10th career shutout over No.5-ranked Ohio State in front of a record-setting crowd of 1322 at the FGCU Soccer Complex. His hard work in the two matches earned the net-minder an All-Tournament team selection.
The Leola, Pa. native has now started all seven games in net for the Eagles. With two shutouts to his name, Glick has recorded 30 saves and a 0.78 goals against average after playing just under 690 minutes in goal on the season.
Also earning recognition from the A-Sun, freshman forward Ryan Price (Melbourne Beach, Fla./Melbourne HS) picked up honorable mention for his play over the weekend. The newcomer netted the Eagles’ game-winning goal in the 64th minute of competition to take the 1-0 victory over the nationally ranked Buckeyes.
The Eagles land back at home for a Friday night clash with the FIU Golden Panthers on Sept. 24 at the FGCU Soccer Complex, with kickoff slated for 7 p.m.
