Connor Virjee Named MPSF Player of the Week
Oct. 28, 2013
USC senior Connor Virjee has snagged his first MPSF Player of the Week award after hitting a career-high five goals in a key MPSF road win for the Trojans over No. 6 UC Santa Barbara this past weekend.
Virjee had a hat trick in the books in the first period of play and finished up the 16-10 USC victory with a five-goal outing. Virjee entered his senior year with 45 career goals, but the senior has now provided 39 goals already in this one season, good for third most on the Trojan roster in 2013. Top-ranked USC improved to 20-1 overall and 2-0 in MPSF play with Sunday's win over the No. 6 Gauchos.
This is the first career MPSF pick for Virjee, who joins teammate Kostas Genidounias as USC's weekly award honorees this season.
Virjee and the Trojans now set up for a trip to Pacific to take on the Tigers in a 12 p.m. match on Saturday (Nov. 2) in Stockton, Calif.
