GSW junior Sean Howe has been named the Peach Belt Conference men's soccer Defensive Player of the Week.
Howe and the GSW defense did their jobs in back-to-back 1-0 losses to Florida Tech and Eckerd last week.
Against FIT, the Hurricane defense faced 14 shots, nine on goal, and allowed the lone score on a rebound after a block with less than 10 minutes to play.
Eckerd scored their lone goal on a penalty kick as Howe and the GSW defense turned away 14 shots, six on goal. After a tough start, the Hurricane defense has risen to sixth in the PBC in goals against average.
Howe, a transfer from South Georgia College, is a native of Portsmouth, England. He becomes the second GSW soccer player in the program's history to receive a PBC weekly award. Jonathan Smith was named Defensive Player of the Week on October 14, 2008.
Howe and the Hurricanes are back in action tomorrow (9/11) for a 4 p.m. non-conference match with St. Leo.
