RICHMOND, Va. – VCU's Jared Greene and Mario Sequeira were honored with the Atlantic 10 Conference Men's Soccer Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week awards, respectively, after coming off of a 4-0 victory over No. 20 Old Dominion
Greene, a sophomore forward from Virginia Beach, Va., helped lead VCU to a victory over No. 20 ODU by scoring two goals and registering one assist. His two goals came within a minute of each other (54th, 55th) which extended the Rams' lead to 3-0 and also set the tone for the rest of the match. Later on, he unselfishly passed up a shot which allowed senior midfielder Joseph Gonnella to put the game away for VCU in the 65th minute.
Sophomore keeper and Costa Rican native Sequeira, recorded his fifth clean sheet of the season after recording five saves in the victory over No. 20 ODU. Sequeira registered back-to-back saves that posed a threat to the 1-0 lead the Rams had in the 47th minute.
VCU returns to play to finish out its three-game homestand when it hosts Akron on Sept. 26, at 7 p.m.
