Lassoued earns MEC honors

For the third straight week, an Urbana University men’s soccer player has picked up an award from the Mountain East Conference. The league office announced Monday that UU graduate student Raoui Lassoued has been selected the MEC Offensive Player of the Week.

Lassoued, a native of Paris, France, scored two goals and recorded an assist to help No. 23 UU collect two MEC wins, while extending the team’s win streak to seven games last week.

Both of Lassoued’s goals came in the second half at Wheeling Jesuit last Saturday, as the Blue Knights produced a season-high four goals in a shutout win.

The 5-foot-11 forward struck with a pair of brilliant finishes, including a highlight reel 30-yard strike from straight on in the 64th minute to put UU ahead 3-0.

Lassoued then added his second goal from the left wing, thanks to a Lars Blenckers assist with 10 minutes left in regulation.

Lassoued is second on the team with five goals in his first year as a Blue Knight.

He also provided an assist on UU’s game-winner in a 3-1 triumph over Shepherd last Wednesday.

Lassoued is the third Blue Knight to receive player of the week recognition this season, joining goalkeeper Nate Jones (Sept. 28) and forward Mike McFarlane (Sept. 21).

The Blue Knights continue league play on Tuesday when they travel to rival No. 25 Notre Dame College.

UU knocked off the Falcons earlier this season, 3-2.

Match start time is scheduled at 4 p.m. in Euclid, Ohio.
