NEW ALBANY, Ind. — No. 4-ranked University of Rio Grande had Eduardo Zurita named River States Conference Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week Sept. 18-24 for his play in a victory over No. 10 Lindsey Wilson (Ky.).

It’s the second weekly honor of the year for the junior midfielder from Sant Boi de Llobregat, Spain.

Zurita led a defensive effort that brought home a 2-1 victory for the RedStorm. The Rio Grande defense allowed just two shots the first half to build a 1-0 lead.

The RedStorm then held off nine shots and three corner kicks the second half and allowed only a penalty-kick goal with 3:48 left.

Rio Grande is now 6-1 overall and begins RSC play for its next game Thursday at Brescia.
