Senior Jack Scott of the American University men’s soccer team has been honored as the AU Student-Athlete of the Week presented by GEICO, Department of Athletics officials announced Monday.
Scott scored the game-winner in American’s dramatic 1-0 win over Lehigh on Saturday. His strike came in the 90th minute of play off a feed from Alassane Kane to break a scoreless tie and propel the Eagles to the victory. The win kept AU in first place in the Patriot League standings and officially clinched the Eagles a berth into the Patriot League Tournament.
The goal was Scott’s third of the season and ninth of his career. He now has two game-winners with the other coming during his freshman season in 2008.
Scott and the Eagles will return to action this Saturday, November 5 at Holy Cross. A win or draw will clinch the Patriot League regular season title for AU as well as the right to host the Patriot League Tournament.
