National Player Of The Week

Valparaiso Midfielder Lucca Lacerda - College Soccer News National Player of the Week - Week Ending October 14, 2018

Lucca Lacerda  Senior  Midfielder  Valparaiso

No player in the country had more of an impact on the success his team enjoyed this week than Lacerda.  His three goal week enabled Valpo to win back-to-back games for the first time this year. 

Lacerda netted the game-winning goal in Valpo's 2-1 win over Eastern Illinois when he scored out of a free kick from ten yards outside the box in the eighty-fifth minute of play.  He also provided the assist on teammate Akeem Bradford's goal.   

Lacerda followed that contest up with goals from fifteen and thirty-five yards out to lead Valpo to a 2-0 win over Bradley on the road in a Missouri Valley Conference match. 

Valparaiso will seek to keep their win streak alive when they host Central Arkansas on Saturday.
