DETROIT, Mich. -- The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) office named Levanno Lewis the Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week Monday (Oct. 7) for the week Sept. 28 – Oct. 3. The honor is a first for Lewis in only his fifth game with the Mustangs.
A freshman keeper from Montego Bay, Jamaica, Lewis posted back-to-back shutouts on the road at Indiana Tech and then home against Concordia-Ann Arbor to help lift the Mustangs' WHAC record to 3-1-0 on the season. In total, the freshman turned away seven shots on the week to secure his first shutouts at the collegiate level.
Since arriving in net, Lewis has started all conference contests for the Mustangs and owns a 3-2 overall record.
Known also as a team award in the eyes of many, Lewis' honor could not have happened without the brilliant play of the defense last week. Leading the way on the Mustang defense was sophomore Abdoulie Jallow (Bansang, The Gambia/Rust). The attacking mid moved to center back last week as the Mustangs looked to replace a few missing pieces. In two games, Jallow helped cool off the opposing attack while also registering the game-winning goal in the 1-0 win over Concordia-Ann Arbor Saturday (Oct. 5).
