Howe earns PBC Player of the Week honors

GSW junior Sean Howe has been named the Peach Belt Conference men's soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

Howe and the GSW defense did their jobs in back-to-back 1-0 losses to Florida Tech and Eckerd last week.

Against FIT, the Hurricane defense faced 14 shots, nine on goal, and allowed the lone score on a rebound after a block with less than 10 minutes to play.

Eckerd scored their lone goal on a penalty kick as Howe and the GSW defense turned away 14 shots, six on goal. After a tough start, the Hurricane defense has risen to sixth in the PBC in goals against average. 

Howe, a transfer from South Georgia College, is a native of Portsmouth, England. He becomes the second GSW soccer player in the program's history to receive a PBC weekly award.  Jonathan Smith was named Defensive Player of the Week on October 14, 2008. 

Howe and the Hurricanes are back in action tomorrow (9/11) for a 4 p.m. non-conference match with St. Leo.
