Junior Megan Tock of the Canisius College women's soccer team was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week for her shutout performance in goal in the Golden Griffins' lone match this weekend versus Duquesne, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon.
Making her seventh start of the season, Tock collected 10 saves in the Griffs' 2-0 victory over Duquesne on Friday evening. The junior secured her second shutout of the season, third of her career.
"Megan stepped up this weekend and had a great game versus Duquesne. She had many great saves to help our team get our second win of the season," said head coach Jim Wendling. "She is very capable of playing like this in net each game. She needs to continue this outstanding play in goal to help our team as we head toward conference play."
Tock's selection marked the first time a Griffs' goalkeeper earned conference honors since Leslie Ivancic on Oct. 25, 2010.
The Blue and Gold return to action this weekend with a pair of contests. The Griffs open the weekend on Friday evening at 7 p.m. at Bucknell for their fourth straight road match before returning to the Demske Sports Complex on Sunday against Little Three rival St. Bonaventure at 1 p.m.
