KANSAS CITY, Mo. – St. Bonaventure University men's soccer senior Kieran Toland has earned honors from United Soccer Coaches as the Division I National Player of the Week.
Toland was selected from nominations across the country after his standout performance over a nationally ranked VCU team. He notched a goal and an assist in St. Bonaventure's 2-1 upset over No. 22 VCU last Wednesday to lead the Bonnies.
He scored possibly the goal of the season for the Brown and White during the eighth minute as his shot curled around the post into the upper-90 of the net, giving the Rams' goalkeeper no chance of making the save.
Toland assisted on the eventual game-winning goal from his corner kick that fell to freshman Nicola Bonso, who buried the shot to give the Bonnies the 2-1 lead. The victory clinched St. Bonaventure's first Atlantic 10 Tournament bid since 2010.
Toland led the Bonnies with 14 points on four goals and six assists this season.
Each Tuesday during the college regular season, United Soccer Coaches selects a men's and women's Player of the Week for NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and junior college competition based on nominations from schools and conferences across the country.
