Morgan Tabbed CAA Men's Soccer Player of the Week

RICHMOND, Va. - After pacing the George Mason men's soccer team to a 1-0-1 weekend against nationally-ranked opponents, junior forward Taylor Morgan has been selected as the Colonial Athletic Association Men's Soccer Player of the Week, as announced by the conference office Monday. It is the second weekly accolade for Morgan this season.

A native of Southampton, England, Morgan led the Patriots with two goals during the two-game weekend, including the game-winner against No. 24 Cal State Fullerton. Opening weekend action against No. 8/10 Central Florida, Morgan scored the Patriots' lone goal in the 1-1 double-overtime draw, converting a Leo Stolz free kick to put Mason up 1-0 over the Knights.

In Sunday action, Morgan scored the game-winner against the Titans on a penalty kick in the 69th minute. It was the first loss of the season for Cal State Fullerton.

On the season, Morgan has been an offensive force with a team-leading six goals and three assists. He has been efficient in his shots, firing 12 on frame in his 21 total efforts this season. Morgan ranks in the top 10 in the league in nearly every offensive category, including first in points (15) and game-winning goals (3), second in goals per game (0.86), tied for second in goals (6), fourth in points per game (2.14), fifth in shots (21) and tied for fifth in assists (3).

"Taylor has finished some very important goals this season," commented head coach Greg Andrulis. "He has grown so much in the last year and is in fine form at the moment. His hard work is really paying off."

Earlier this season, Morgan was tabbed the Co-Player of the Week after leading Mason to the D.C. College Cup.

Mason returns to action and opens conference play welcoming No.11/21 Old Dominion on Saturday, September 24. The Patriots will face the Monarchs at 7 p.m.
