St. Thomas Aquinas College Men's Soccer Goalkeeper Jack Nicholson has been named ECC Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon, following the Spartans 2-0 week on the field.
Nicholson, the senior from Totton Southampton, England, made 5 saves and posted a 0.48 goals against avergage and an .833 save percentage in a 2-0 week for St. Thomas Aquinas. Jack started the week with one save and a shutout in a 1-0 win over Roberts Wesleyan College on Thursday and he followed that up with four more saves in a 2-1 overtime victory against New York Institute of Technology on Sunday.
This is Jack's second ECC Defensive Player of the Week nod this season, as he was also selected for this honor on September 10.
The Spartans are now slotted 6th in the latest United Soccer Coaches DII East Region Poll, and look to extend their five-game winning streak on Saturday, October 13 when STAC travels to Rockville Centre to take on the Molloy College Lions, with kickoff scheduled for noon.
