LA GRANDE, Ore. – Freshman forward Willie Spurr (Seattle, Wash./Roosevelt HS) and junior goalkeeper Collin Harlow (Kirkland, Wash./Shoreline CC) were both named Red Lion Cascade Conference Players of the Week following an outstanding weekend on the pitch as the Geoducks earned a pair of conference wins.
Spurr earned Offensive Player of the Week honors after scoring three goals and assisting on two others to vault himself to the top of numerous conference statistical categories. The freshman leads the conference in points (8), points per game (1.60), goals (3), and goals per game (0.60). He scored the equalizer and assisted on the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win over College of Idaho on Friday and then scored the first two goals and assisted on another in a 5-0 win over Oregon Tech on Saturday.
Harlow was named Defensive Player of the Week after allowing just one goal in 180 minutes for the Geoducks. Making his Evergreen debut, the lone goal allowed came on a penalty kick in the 2-1 win over College of Idaho and then the 6-3 junior made five saves to secure the shutout on Saturday in the 5-0 win over Oregon Tech. His 0.50 GAA and .857 save percentage are both tops in the CCC this season.
The Geoducks will look to improve to 3-0 in Cascade Conference play for the first time since 2005 when they play host to Corban on Wednesday, beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Evergreen Pitch in Olympia, Wash.
