NEW YORK –
For the second time this season, senior goalkeeper Luis Barraza
has earned BIG EAST Conference weekly recognition as he was named to the honor roll, the league office announced on Monday.
The Santa Teresa, New Mexico, native made four saves and recorded his third shutout of the season and ninth of his career against the league's top offensive unit in Georgetown on Saturday. Three of his saves came in the first half with another in the second extra time session.
Barraza went the full 110 minutes as Marquette (3-6-1, 1-1-1 BIG EAST) secured a much-needed point in league action with the scoreless draw. The four-year starter is off to the best start to a season in his career, having compiled a 3-3-1 overall record with a 0.82 goals against average and an impressive .842 save percentage. Back on Sept. 3, he was named the league's Goalkeeper of the Week for the second time in his career.
The Golden Eagles will face another difficult test on Saturday, Oct. 6, when travel to Providence, which sits just ahead of them in the standings at (5-4-1, 2-1-0 BIG EAST).
