Freshman goalkeeper Matheus Rossi was chosen as the USA South Conference Men’s Soccer Defender of the Week after a strong individual performance in goal for the Brevard College men’s soccer team in its first two contests of the season.

Rossi, a first-year student-athlete from Victoria, E.S., Brazil, allowed three goals while stopping 83% of the shots he faced in an 0-2 week for the Tornados. In a 2-1 loss to Southern Wesleyan, Rossi played the second half and allowed one goal while making four saves. In a 2-0 loss to Carolina University, Rossi went the distance and stopped 11 shots.

Overall, Rossi has totaled 15 saves for Brevard in 135 minutes of game action through the early stages of the season.

BC will search for its first victory of the 2022 campaign when the Tornados travel to Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday to take on Oglethorpe University at 7:30 p.m.
