Alejandro Melean Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

Sept. 1, 2008

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior defender Alejandro Melean (Miami, Fla.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from August 25-31. Melean led the Holy Cross men's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over 13th-ranked Massachusetts in its opening game of the season.

During Friday's 1-0 win over the Minutemen, Melean scored the lone goal of the game 9:46 into the first half. He headed in a cross from sophomore midfielder Jon Werth (University Park, Md.) to give the Crusaders the lead, and was then part of a stellar team defensive effort to post a shutout.

Over the course of his career as a Crusader, Melean has now totaled 16 points on seven goals and two assists.

The Crusaders (1-0 overall) return to action on Tuesday, September 2, when they play host to Central Connecticut State at 7:00 p.m. For information on how to view the Holy Cross-Central Connecticut game on the internet, click here.
