SOCCER NEWS NET SALUTE
FDUís Antony Moore is Men's Player of the Week
Fairleigh Dickinson senior midfielder Antony Moore has been named the Soccer News Net Menís College Player of the Week for the week ending November 18.
Moore had a goal and two assists as the Knights advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament with upset wins over St. Johnís and St. Louis, both on the road.
The Knights started their improbable run on Thursday, with a 1-0 win over the Red Storm at Belson Stadium. Moore scored the only goal of the game in the 36th minute. Freshman Jan Aubertís shot was blocked by a defender and the ball found Moore, who fired the ball into the upper left corner of the net.
On Sunday, Moore set the table for the Knightsí go-ahead goal against the Billikens in the 56th minute, sending a cross from the right corner to Aubert, who found the back left side of the net. In the third minute of the second overtime, after sophomore Nico Wright and a SLU defender fell to the ground about 20 yards in Billikensí territory, Moore went down the right sideline and sent a cross into the penalty area to Jack McVey, who put away the golden goal from 10 yards.
