Oct. 23, 2006

Fairfield, CT - Men's soccer sophomore Jason Tessitore (Ansonia, CT) has been named the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart University Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of October 16th-22nd.

Tessitore scored two goals, including the game winner, in the Pioneers win over Robert Morris on Sunday. Both goals came in a seven minute span in the second half to give the Pioneers a crucial win in the hunt for the NEC playoffs. The pair of markers brought Tessitore's total to five for the season, and, combined with his four assists, raised his point total to 14, tying him for the team lead.

Tessitore and the Pioneers play three games this week to close out the regular season. Tuesday night SHU visits Army at 7:00 pm. The Pioneers then travel to Mount St. Mary's Friday and Monmouth on Sunday to close out the Northeast Conference schedule.
