NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – St. Bonaventure University men's soccer sophomore Luca Nicastro has earned Atlantic 10 Co-Player of the Week honors, conference officials announced Monday.
An Ottawa, Ontario native, Nicastro netted the first game-winning goal of his career in overtime last Friday afternoon against Gannon, which reached the Division II Sweet 16 before losing to the eventual national champion in 2019, at Sahlen's Sports Park.
Nicastro pounced on a Gannon mistake in the 95th minute, made a move around the goalkeeper and slotted home the goal, sending the Bonnies home winners, 2-1, in the first contest of the season.
The sophomore forward started seven games in his first season with the Bonnies in 2019 while playing in all 14 games. Nicastro also scored a goal and added two assists as a freshman.
The Bonnies are back in action Sunday, March 7 at the Marra Athletics Complex against St. Francis (Pa.). St. Bonaventure's home opener is slated to begin at 4:00 p.m.
