WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior forward Tommy Uttaro (Staten Island, N.Y.) has been named the GoHolyCross.com Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 23-29. Uttaro helped lead the Holy Cross men's soccer team to a 1-1 record in two games last week.
After not scoring in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to New Hampshire, Uttaro propelled the Crusaders to victory in Saturday's 2-1 win at Loyola (Md.). With the game tied a 1-1 late in the second half, he took a pass from senior forward Josh Cintas (San Diego, Calif.) in the penalty box and found the net with only 3:35 left on the clock to give Holy Cross the win.
Uttaro now ranks second on the team in scoring this season with five points on two goals and one assist. Over the course of his collegiate career, he has now totaled seven goals and seven assists for 21 points, with three game-winning goals.
The Crusaders (3-4-1 overall, 1-0-0 Patriot League) return to action on Saturday, Oct. 5, when they play host to American at 7:00 p.m.
