Riley nets third WCC POTW Honor

For the third time in the last four weeks and the third time overall this season, Pacific men's soccer's senior midfielder Camden Riley has been named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week. This also makes the fourth-straight week that a player from Pacific has earned the award. Junior Jonathan Jimenez earned the title last week.

The senior midfielder helped the Tigers to a second-place finish in the in the West Coast Conference and boosted their chances of securing a spot in the NCAA Tournament with his fourth game-winning goal of the season. Riley's strike came in the 64th minute of what ended as a 1-0 game at Gonzaga. Riley got on the end of a freekick from junior Andreas Charalambous and volleyed it into the net for his ninth goal of the season. His goal gave him his 23rd point of the year, a new single-season record for the Tigers since the program was brought back in 2014 and his ninth goal tied the most in a season since then.

This is the fifth time that a Pacific player has won the honor this year which ties Saint Mary's for the most this season. Riley's third honor ties Saint Mary's junior forward Jake Rudel for the most on the year.
