WASHINGTON - No. 25/20 Georgetown University men's soccer players Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) and JT Marcinkowski (Alamo, Calif./De La Salle) were both named BIG EAST Players of the Week on Monday. Muyl was named the Offensive Player of the Week, while Marcinkowski was the Rookie of the Week. The Hoyas are currently 5-2-2 overall and 1-0-0 in BIG EAST play.
Muyl had a four-point week which included a goal and two assists. The junior forward's goal in the 53rd minute broke the scoreless tie and gave Georgetown the first advantage in the Hoyas' 2-1 victory over then-No. 11/13 Maryland on Wednesday. Muyl then had the assist on the game winner in the 83rd minute, setting up Arun Basuljevic (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac). On Saturday, Muyl once again had a hand in the game winner setting up Brett Campbell's (Wallingford, Pa./The Haverford School) goal in the 64th minute.
This is Muyl's first BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week award this season as well as the first of his career. It is the second Offensive Player of the Week award for the Blue & Gray this season.
Rookie keeper Marcinkowski went 2-0 in goal with nine saves for the Hoyas. Marcinkowski posted his second-career shutout against Providence with four saves between the posts. Against the Terps, the freshman had five saves, limiting Maryland to just one goal.
This marks Marcinkowski's third-career honor after earning the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week and Goalkeeper of the Week awards earlier this season.
After four games in just 10 days, the Hoyas have the week off before continuing BIG EAST Conference play at Xavier University on Saturday.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m., and the game will be broadcast live on the BIG EAST Digital Network. Live stats will also be available through the Musketeers' athletic website.
