Junior forward Zachary Senft of the Case Western Reserve University men's soccer team has been named the University Athletic Association men's soccer offensive athlete of the week as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon.
Senft helped lead the Spartans to two tough victories this past weekend, as CWRU defeated 23rd-ranked Washington (Mo.) University 1-0 on Friday and then toppled the top-ranked University of Chicago 2-1 on Sunday. Senft gathered one goal and assist throughout the two games over the weekend. On Friday, Senft assisted on senior forward Alex Besl's goal which ended up being the game-winning goal. On Sunday, Senft put the Spartans on the board first with his fifth goal of the year in the 55th minute of the game.
For the season, Senft ranks second on the team with 16 total points on five goals and six assists. In addition, he currently ranks tied for third among all University Athletic Association players with six assists. Case Western Reserve improved to 11-2-1 overall on the season with the two victories, including a 2-1-1 ledger in University Athletic Association games.
With a week off before their next game, the Spartans will have some time rest, before refocusing on a run at the UAA Championships during the stretch run of the season. Case Western Reserve will return to action next Monday, October 22nd with a 7:00 p.m. non-conference game against Westminster College (Pa.), the team's final home game of the regular season.
