NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame men’s soccer players Steven Perry (Edmond, Okla./Bishop McGuinness) and Aaron Maund (Dorchester, Mass./The Roxbury Latin School) have garnered national and conference honors, respectively, for their roles in helping the Fighting Irish capture last weekend’s Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament title. Perry was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com College Team of the Week, while Maund was selected to the BIG EAST weekly honor roll.
Perry scored a career-high two goals in Friday’s 2-0 victory over No. 22 Drake. The senior forward registered a game-high nine shots and was part of a high-powered Notre Dame attack that totaled 32 shots against the Bulldogs. Perry was named the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament offensive MVP.
Junior defender Aaron Maund
Maund, a central defender, put the Irish on the board in the 51st minute in Sunday’s 5-1 triumph of Cal Poly. That was the second goal of his career. The junior also anchored the Irish defense, which allowed just one goal and surrendered just eight shots on goal during the tournament. Maund was named the tournament’s defensive MVP.
The Irish return to action on Friday, Sept. 17 at Michigan. Kickoff against the Wolverines is slated for 7:30 p.m. (ET). Notre Dame is back at home against Michigan State at 2:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, Sept. 19.
