FORT MYERS, Fla. – For the second time this season and the fifth time in his career, redshirt junior goalkeeper Adam Glick’s (Leola, Pa./Conestoga Valley HS) efforts in net earned him Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Week honors, announced by the conference office on Monday.
Just three weeks removed from his first conference weekly award of the season, Glick helped No. 25 FGCU improve to 8-2-2 on the season, including a perfect 4-0 in the A-Sun, by posting back-to-back shutouts against USC Upstate and regionally-ranked ETSU over the weekend. Glick’s consecutive shutouts stretched FGCU’s shutout streak to a program record three games and gave the third-year net-minder 13 for his career.
Glick began the weekend by making four saves during FGCU’s 2-0 victory over USC Upstate on Friday. The Leola, Pa. native built off the win over the Spartans with a dominating performance against ETSU that featured six stops, including four in the second half. The pair of wins put Glick’s career total at 22, while he leads the A-Sun in save percentage (.862), saves (50) and shutouts (5). Glick also sports a 0.63 goals against average while logging every minute (1141:46) in net this season for the Eagles.
FGCU’s recent three-game shutout streak has also seen the offense come alive, as the Eagles have scored nine goals over the last three contests. Through four A-Sun contests, the Blue and Green have given up just one goal while scoring 11.
Glick and FGCU will be back in action when they wrap up the road portion of the 2010 campaign. The Eagles will begin by heading to Buies Creek, N.C. to face Campbell (4-3-4, 2-1) on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. FGCU will then head south to Georgia to square off against Mercer (6-3-1, 1-2) on Saturday, Oct. 16 in another 7 p.m. kick-off.
