Galvani named Conference Carolinas Player of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Freshman forward James Galvani (High Wycombe, U.K.) has been named the Conference Carolinas Player of the Week after leading the Lees-McRae College men's soccer team to a 1-0-1 worksheet last week, announced league officials Tuesday.

Galvani turned in his best performance of the season on Wednesday at King (Tenn.), scoring two goals, including the match-winner, and tallying an assist to lead the Bobcats to a 3-1 win over the Tornado.

The 6-2, 160-pound forward followed with a relentless effort on the attack against Pfeiffer, creating multiple scoring opportunities in the eventual 1-1 draw. The High Wycombe, U.K. native currently ranks second on the team in goals (five), assists (four), and points (14).

Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Tuesday when the Bobcats travel to Harrogate, Tenn. for a pivotal regional matchup with Lincoln Memorial University. The match is slated to kick off at 4 p.m.
