Men's Soccer Turner Honored as MVC Defensive Player of the Week
Oct. 14, 2013
St. LOUIS -- Missouri State junior defender Andrew Turner was named the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week in soccer Monday for the first time in his career.
Turner was a force in the back line for the Bears. In addition to helping secure the shutout victory on Saturday evening against Missouri Valley Conference opponent Drake (the third straight for the Bears), Turner played a perfect over-the-top ball that traveled nearly the length of the field to Roberts for the goal. The assist was the first points of the season for Turner and moves him into a tie for second place in MVC assists.
Missouri State returns to action Oct. 15 with a 7 p.m. match against Oral Roberts at Plaster Field.
