ATH: Texas Duo Make Futbol News

From Soccer America

SMU's Cruz named Men's Player of the Week

SMU's Leone Cruz won't quickly forget his college debut.

The defender from Round Rock, Texas, is the Soccer America Men's Player of the Week after scoring both game-winning goals in the No. 2 Mustangs' 1-0 victories over Wisconsin and then-ranked Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Tulsa's Great Western Downtown Plaza/Golden Hurricane Classic.

Cruz, who played for FC Texas, came off the bench to connect from 20 yards in overtime against Wisconsin and from 10 yards in the 84th minute against Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Tigers remain on fire

Is there a better duo in the country?

Clemson seniors Dane Richards and Frederico Moojen are proving hard to stop. After combining for three goals and two assists in the fifth-ranked Tigers' 4-3 win over South Carolina on opening night, they added two goals apiece in their 8-1 victory over Georgia State Tuesday night in their home opener at Historic Riggs Field. Richards, a Jamaica international, joined the Tigers last season from San Jacinto-South JC. The Brazilian Moojen transferred this year from D2 Lincoln Memorial.

Hector Quintanar isn't playing too bad, either. After contributing one goal and one assist for the Tigers against South Carolina, the junior had three assists against Georgia State. Like SMU's Cruz, Quintanar hails from Round Rock, Texas.
