ATLANTA – After leading Texas Christian to an upset victory over No. 25 LSU on Saturday afternoon, Horned Frogs junior netminder Brody Cummins earned PEARL Goalie of the Week honors for the period ending Feb. 9.
TCU headed to Baton Rouge for its season-opener against defending conference champion LSU, and the Cherry Creek, Colo., product ensured that the Frogs came home with a win.
Cummins turned away 18 shots on the day while allowing just five goals (78.3 save percentage) in the 9-5 triumph.
“Brody Cummins performance on the field provides the heartbeat of our mental and physical approach to our deep defense,” said Texas Christian coach Mark Purcell. “Brody is stellar in stopping difficult shots as well as having the passing skills to make TCU an efficient clearing team.
“Off the field, Brody is our team president and co-captain. His leadership is valued by both the players and coaching staff.”
For his efforts in earning the Pearl’s Performance of the Week, Mandel will receive a prize package from Guardian Pearl, a ball that lasts longer than the rest and never greases. Guardian Pearl is the proud partner of the MCLA.
