PHILADELPHIA--Penn's senior goalkeeper Drew Healy repeated as the Philadelphia Soccer Seven Player of the Week and was named to the weekly Ivy League Honor Roll. Newcomer Jake Levin was also named on the Ivy League Honor Roll.
Healy secured the Penn net in two more shutouts over the weekend. He made eight saves against a prolific Seton Hall team and shut down Samuel Petrone who came into the match scoring eight goals over the previous four games. Healy made four saves against American to secure his fourth consecutive shutout and become just the second Quaker to accomplish the feat. The other was Jim Miller in 1972.
Levin continued to shine on Penn’s backline, securing two more shutouts for the Quakers. The four consecutive shutouts tie the program record set in 1972. Levin closed out last week’s NSCAA Player of the Week,Petrone (SHU), who had scored eight goals in the previous four games. Penn was the first team to defeat Seton Hall and remains the only team to blank them this season. Against American, Levin quieted the attack and took away a number of scoring chances.
Healy shares his PS7 honor with Temple freshman Tyler Witmer who scored the only two goals of the game in the Owls' win over Hofstra.
Healy, Levin and the Quakers host their home-opener Friday against Buffalo. It is also the first game of the Penn Soccer Classic and will begin at 7:30 p.m.
