Galvani named Conference Carolinas Player of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College sophomore James Galvani (High Wycombe, England) has been named the Conference Carolinas Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the second time in his career, announced league officials Tuesday.

Galvani led the Bobcats to a pair of 2-1 victories last week against Carson-Newman College and Queens University of Charlotte, scoring three goals and recording an assist to play a role in each of Lees-McRae's four tallies during the two-match stretch.

On Tuesday, he notched the first goal of the match against Carson-Newman before providing the assist on the winner three minutes later. Galvani then led the Bobcats to a pivotal 2-1 win over Queens on Saturday, scoring a pair of masterful goals for his first brace of the season. The 6-3, 175-pound forward currently leads the team with four goals, three assists, and 11 points. The Bobcats now stand at 8-3-1 overall and 5-1 in league play.

Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Wednesday when the Bobcats continue their conference slate against Belmont Abbey College at 7 p.m. on Tate Field.
