Propelling the East Texas Baptist University men’s soccer team to a 4-0 win over Louisiana College, senior Christian Garcia was given his second American Southwest Conference “Player of the Week” award this season. He netted two of ETBU’s four goals in the shutout win.
Garcia netted goals in the 18th and 68th minutes to seal the win for ETBU. The 18th minute goal put ETBU ahead, 2-0, as he was given the ball by fellow senior Bryan Romero. In the 68th minute, Brett Forbus passed the ball up to Garcia giving him his second goal of the match. In the match, he took five shots with four on goal in his final match at Cornish Field on senior day.
For the season, Garcia now has eight goals for 16 points to lead the team. He has taken 31 shots with 21 on goal this year. He was also named the ASC’s player of the week on September 2nd. ETBU is still in contention for a spot in the ASC Tournament as they head to West Texas for their final two regular season matches vs. Howard Payne and Hardin-Simmons.
