LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego's Evan Walker has been named the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Men's Soccer Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday.
Walker helped the Tritons post an undefeated weekend of CCAA play with consecutive home victories over Cal State Dominguez Hills and Cal State San Bernardino. The senior forward from Newport Beach accounted for both game-winning goals, recording a .667 shot-on-goal percentage for the weekend.
On Friday, Walker's header in the 21st minute against CSUDH was the only goal in the match and his first of the season.
Sunday, Walker received a serve from Elan Gefen and scored the game's first goal in a 2-0 shutout of San Bernardino.
UC San Diego, in first place in the CCAA's South Division, will play at Sonoma State on Friday, Oct. 5, the team's first tilt against a North Division opponent this season.
