ATLANTA – After leading Santa Clara to a stunning victory against the second-ranked team in the country, Broncos sophomore backstop Louis Harvey has been named the MCLA Division I PEARL Goalie of the Week for the period ending March 6.
With then-No. 2 Cal arriving in town, Santa Clara had its work cut out for it but Harvey was up to the task. The San Jose, Calif., native turned away a staggering 28 Golden Bear shots, allowing the Broncos to walk away with a 10-9 overtime triumph.
“Lou has been a huge asset to the team all year long and a huge reason we are 5-0 on the year,” said Santa Clara coach Greg Hollingshead. “His leadership on and off the field is vital to the team’s success. In the game against Cal, Lou our offense within striking distance to finish.
“We talked before the game about how he was going to need a huge game, and he more than delivered. Lou commands respect out there and the whole team feeds off his energy. I can’t wait to see him continue to thrive.”
For earning the PEARL’s Goalie of the Week, Harvey 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.
