Giovagnoli Named POTW Third Time

ImageANNVILLE, Pa.—Eric Giovagnoli of Eastern University Men’s Soccer earned the Freedom Conference’s Player of the Week distinction for the third time this season.

Giovagnoli (Royersford, Pa./ Spring-Ford) led the Eagles to two conference wins the week of Oct. 21-27, propelling the Eagles to first place in the conference. He finished the week with three goals and an assist, giving him 11 goals and seven assists so far this year.

Giovagnoli did not start Wednesday’s game against Delaware Valley College because of an injury, but entered the game when the Eagles went down a goal and down a man. Giovagnoli played approximately 30 minutes and sunk the game-winning goal in the 49th minute. He also assisted Mitch Osterhouse in the 52nd minute, putting Eastern up 3-1. The Eagles held on to win 3-2.

Against King’s College (Pa.) on Saturday, Giovagnoli put the Eagles up 1-0 in the 12th minute. He chased down a through-ball from Josh Cirocco and booked it to the box where he he was tripped and earned the penalty kick. He converted the penalty corner and then scored again in the second half, stealing a ball from the Monarchs’ keeper and finishing it. Eastern won the game 3-0 and took first place in the conference.

Eastern (12-3-1, Freedom 4-1-1-) clinched a spot in the Freedom Conference playoffs and can secure the top seed with a win on Saturday. The Eagles play PSU-Abington today at 3:30 p.m. and the final conference game on Saturday versus FDU-Florham at 2:30 p.m.
