Notre Dame, IN. Illja Golubevs was tabbed the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the week for the week of September 4-10. This is the second straight week a Holy Cross College men's soccer player has been awarded the player of the week honors
Golubevs, from Riga, Latvia, scored both the game-tying and game-winning goals in the Saints 4-3 victory over Goshen College (Ind). Holy Cross was 1-1 on the week and finished their non-conference schedule with a record of 4-2.
"This is more great news for our program and just what we needed to keep our confidence riding high," said coach Gallo on Golubevs' accolades. "Ilja has come back this year setting the bar high for everyone - his leadership, fitness level, and quick decision making has really stood out since he arrived in August. I'm proud of his efforts and am looking forward to having him continue to lead our young group of guys as we enter conference play."
Men's Soccer will be back in action Tuesday September 19, when they start conference play versus St. Xavier.
