For the second week in a row, Westmont goalkeeper Joshua Glover has been named the Golden State Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. Glover recorded two shutouts last week as the 25th-ranked Warriors improved to 5-2-1 on the season and 2-0-1 in conference play.
Against San Diego Christian last Tuesday, Glover tallied seven saves in the 2-0 win. Following the contest, Westmont head coach Dave Wolf reported, “We got one world class save out of Josh on a ball that was headed for the top corner. He made a fingertip, one handed save. Our goals-against average is under one and we have four shutouts on the year.
“Josh is playing at a very high level right now. When you have a goalkeeper playing as good as he is playing, he exudes a confidence that permeates throughout the team. When Josh made that save you could hear the collective sigh of relief on the bench, but there was also a little bit of awe.”
