NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame men’s soccer players Jeb Brovsky (Lakewood, Colo./Green Mountain) and Brendan King (Naperville, Ill./Edison Academic Center (Fla.)) have copped both national and conference accolades for their part in helping the Irish win their second straight BIG EAST Blue Division title.
Brovsky, a sophomore forward, was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week in addition to being selected to the Top Drawer Soccer national team of the week. He scored a single-game career-high two goals in a 2-1 win over Georgetown on Oct. 29. Both scores came against Hoya goalkeeper Matthew Brutto, who had not allowed a goal to that point of the season in over 763 minutes of play.
The sophomore became the second Irish player to garner the league’s top offensive weekly honor this season. Junior Dave Donohue (Reading, Mass./Cushing Academy) copped the award on Sept. 15.
Brendan King, a freshman midfielder, was named to the Soccer America team of the week.
King, a freshman midfielder, was named to the Soccer America national team of the week along with being chosen to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll. The rookie netted the game winner in a 1-0 victory at West Virginia on Saturday. King scored against a stingy Mountaineer defense that was allowing only 0.62 goals per game. These marked the first national or conference weekly accolades for King.
Notre Dame is the No. 1 seed from the Blue Division for the upcoming BIG EAST Championship. The 11th-ranked Fighting Irish will play host to the winner of Wednesday’s match between West Virginia and Louisville in the quarterfinals on Saturday, Nov. 8. Game time is slated for 6:00 p.m. (ET) at Alumni Field.
