RIVERSIDE, Calif. --- The PacWest conference named California Baptist University's goalkeeper Joey Pacheco the Defender of the Week for the matches contested Oct. 21-27, as announced Monday.
Pacheco helped the Lancers grab a pair of wins on the road at Dominican and Notre Dame de Namur, putting CBU at 8-4-1 overall and 8-2 in the PacWest.
In a 2-1 victory over the Penguins, Pacheco made one save to keep the Lancers in the game. Two days later, Pacheco registered four saves to keep his second clean sheet of the season in a 1-0 win at NDNU.
Over the week, Pacheco held a .833 save percentage in 180 minutes of play. The senior goalkeeper now ranks fourth in the conference with a .750 save percentage and third with a 1.19 goals against average.
Pacheco and the Lancers have just three games left in the regular season, beginning with a road rematch of an earlier 2-1 defeat to Azusa Pacific on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. CBU closes out the regular season at home with a non-conference matchup against Seattle Pacific on Nov. 6 and a PacWest showdown against Dixie State on Nov. 9.
