CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — American Unversity men's soccer junior Fabio Massaro was chosen the first Patriot League Midfielder of the Week, as announced Monday by the league office.
Massaro was an added key in the season-opening win against George Mason, scoring the game-winning goal in the 67th minute. Massaro led the team with four shots and three on goal.
A transfer from Laredo Community College and Utah State Eastern, Massaro scored 12 goals during his two seasons in junior college. The Montegrotto Terme, Italy, native has always had a knack for goal scoring and found the back of the net 23 times while playing for Thermal Teolo Calcio in Italy.
Sophomore Jerry Zouantcha was added to the honorable mentions group after he scored the first goal of the season for American.
American will play at George Washington on Monday and West Virginia on Friday.
