WORCESTER, Mass. – Freshman forward Simon Becher has been named the ckSmithSuperior Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 10-16. Becher scored all three of the Holy Cross men’s soccer team’s goals last week, as it posted an 0-0-2 record in a pair of games.

During Tuesday’s 1-1 double overtime tie at Boston College, Becher scored the Crusaders’ lone goal in the 42nd minute, when he knocked the ball into the net after a shot was deflected by an Eagle defender. Then in Saturday’s 2-2 double overtime tie with Hartford, he scored both of Holy Cross goals. Becher’s first tally came when he beat the goalkeeper one-on-one late in the first half, before he headed in a cross early in the second half for his second goal.

On the season, Becher now leads the team in scoring with six points on three goals.

The Crusaders (0-2-3 overall) return to action on Tuesday, Sept. 18, when they travel to Northeastern for a 6:00 p.m. game.
