West Babylon, N.Y.-University of Bridgeport men's soccer freshman goalkeeper Carlos Tofern (Hamburg, Germany) has been named the East Coast Conference's Defensive Player of the Week for his fine play in matches that took place for September 17 through 23, 2018.
Tofern was outstanding in UB's only match last week, making nine saves to record his first collegiate clean sheet in a 3-0 road victory over the previously unbeaten and nationally-ranked Mercy College Mavericks.
Teammate Nikolai Vadseth (Langevaag, Norway), who scored two goals in the win over Mercy including the game-winner, earned a spot on this week's ECC Men's Soccer Honor Roll.
This week, the University of Bridgeport men's soccer team will host Dominican (N.Y.) College on Tuesday evening and St. Thomas Aquinas College on Saturday afternoon.
