UNCW's Goodrum earns CAA soccer honor

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW midfielder Phillip Goodrum has been named the men's soccer co-player of the week by the CAA.

Goodrum, who also was selected to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week, shared the award with Drexel midfielder Sebastien Cabral.

The Charlotte native recorded his first multi-goal game of his career in a 2-1 victory over William & Mary on Saturday.

"Phillip scored two important goals for us this weekend against William & Mary for a big win on the road," UNCW coach Aidan Heaney said. "He put himself in the right spots to finish his chances and his overall play was really good for us.

"The team responded very well to being down 1-0 on the road, so I think this award is symbolic of the team effort we showed Saturday night and have been showing consistently all season."
