MSU Soccer: Garza Named LSC Defender of the Week

Midwestern State's Fernando Garza was tabbed Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week Wednesday when league officials released weekly award winners.
 
The senior defender from Garland's solid play at left back keyed a pair of solid defensive efforts in 5th-ranked MSU's victories of Newman (Kan.) and Colorado State-Pueblo last week.
 
Garza helped organize a defense that allowed just five shots on frame in nearly 200 minutes of play to produce a pair of positive results.
 
The Mustangs rank 13th in team goals against average (0.31), 16th in shutout percentage (0.67) and 23rd in save percentage (0.857) in the latest NCAA Division II national statistical rankings.
 
West Texas A&M senior midfielder Dominic Furness notched two goals and two assists to lead the Buffs to wins over No. 11 Colorado Mines and Regis (Colo.) to gain the league's top offensive honors.
 
Midwestern State hits the road to face Texas A&M International Friday at 7:30 p.m. before closing the weekend against St. Edward's Sunday in Austin at noon.

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
