SSC Players of the Week
Nick Auditore, Midwestern State University Jr., Forward, Phoenix, Ariz./Desert Vista
Auditore netted two goals to lead No. 5 Midwestern State to a 3-0 win over regionally ranked Texas A&M International Friday night at the MSU Soccer Field. The junior from Phoenix, Ariz. tapped in a goal in the sixth minute after TAMUI keeper Luis Rincon was unable to deflect Kyle Kmiec's cross right in front of the net to give the Mustangs an early. Auditore then put the game away in the 83rd minute finishing a cross from the left wing from Rob Humphrey.
