National Player Of The Week

College Soccer News National Player Of The Week - Week Ending September 1, 2013

Goffin Boyoko - Senior - Forward - UC Santa Barbara 

Boyoko and his teammates traveled to Illinois to face Northwestern on Friday night and the University of Illiniois, Chicago on Sunday afternoon.   Boyoko played a key role in both contests.  He scored the first two goals in UCSB's 3-1 win over Northwestern.  The first was a header out of a free kick put in play by teammate Drew Murphy from twenty-five yards out.  The second was a picture perfect one touch into the back of the net after receiving a cross from teammate Achille Campion.  

Boyoko also headed in the lone goal in the Gaucho's 1-0 win over UIC with an assist from midfielder Armand Bagramyan

It was a very successful start of the 2013 season for the Gauchos who looked solid on both sides of the ball. Boyoko and his teammates will seek to keep their win streak alive when they host Gonzaga on Friday, September 6.
