Moncada earns CAA Player of Week Honors


RICHMOND, Virginia – UNCW junior forward Julio Moncada has been named as the Colonial Athletic Association Men's Soccer Player-of-the-Week for the week ending Sept. 11.

"This is well-deserved recognition for Julio and our team," Head Coach Aidan Heaney said. "Julio has taken his chances very well and has been a real leader for our team. He will be the first to tell you we score as a team and get scored on as a team, so he shares this honor with his teammates."

The Puerto Cortes, Honduras, native led the Seahawks to the UNCW SpringHill Suites Classic championship last weekend with wins over Dayton and Winthrop. Moncada scored the game-winning goal in each contest en route to Offensive MVP honors as UNCW upped its record to 4-0-0.

Moncada leads the Seahawks with four goals and one assist. He has netted a goal in each of the last three games and has tallied a point in all four contests.

UNCW, off to a 4-0-0 start for the first time since 2004, visits Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m.
