ROME, Ga. -- Coming off a 3-0 week with three shutouts, Covenant men's soccer junior defender Noah Lee earned USA South Defensive Player of the Week honors, for the period ending on Sept. 22, announced the conference on Monday.
Lee is the second Covenant player to win the defensive weekly award from the conference, joining keeper Paul Lemay (Sept. 9). Lee is the third Scot to earn a men's soccer honor this year. It is the first career weekly honor for Lee.
A junior from Augusta, Ga., Lee was the anchor of a Scots defense that compiled three shutouts on the week against USA South foes. Lee's play along the back line was crucial as the Scots held the three opponents to a total of 14 shots on the week as the Scots outscored foes 9-0. Covenant has not allowed a goal since a 1-1 draw with Sewanee on Sept. 7.
Lee's play has helped Covenant all year as the Scots rank second in the USA South in goals against average for the year at 0.55, while also allowing the second-fewest goals in the conference (4).
Covenant (6-0-1, 3-0 USA South) is off to its best start to a season since 2004. The Scots will return to Scotland Yard on Friday to face N.C. Wesleyan in a USA South match. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.
