OAKLAND, Calif. - University of New Hampshire junior goalkeeper Brian Levey (Pittsburgh, Pa.) has been named to the Soccer America Magazine National Team of the Week after helping the Wildcat men's soccer team extend its unbeaten streak to six matches last weekend.
Levey made six saves over the weekend as the Wildcats defeated Furman, 2-1, on Friday and Coastal Carolina, 1-0, on Sunday. He held both teams scoreless in the second half of each match, even as the Paladins and Chanticleers increased their offensive pressure in an attempt to tie the score.
The 6'5" goalie was named to the Harvard Invitational All-Tournament Team, the third such honor he has received in as many tournaments. He was also named the Goalkeeper of the Tournament by the tournament officials for his stellar play. Earlier this week, College Soccer News placed Levey on its National Team of the Week, and he earned America East Player of the Week honors.
For the season, Levey is 5-0-1 with a 0.16 goals against average and a .941 save percentage. Levey has five shutouts this season, one off the UNH single-season shutout record that he tied last year. Before Furman scored last Friday, Levey had held opponents scoreless for over 550 minutes in seven matches, dating back to last season.
Levey has established himself as one of the top goalkeepers in Division I this season. In the latest statistical rankings released Tuesday, he is second in Division I in goals against average (0.16) and fourth in save percentage (.941).
After facing UMass at Bremner Field later today, Levey and the rest of the Wildcats travel to Albany for their America East opener against the Great Danes Saturday, Sept. 24, at 1 p.m.
