Jason Beaulieu, the goalkeeper for the New Mexico men’s soccer team, was awarded his second Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week award on Monday after he posted two shutouts last week against Denver and Charlotte.
In 220 minutes last week, Beaulieu recorded his fourth and fifth shutouts of the season. The Lobos were unable to capitalize to the fullest extent however, as they earned double overtime draws in both matches. He is the third player in Lobo history with 22 clean sheets in his career.
He recorded 14 saves last week, and now has 73 on the year, which puts him 21st in the nation.
The Lobos have one more regular season game, as they prepare to take on Old Dominion on Friday, Nov. 3 at 5 p.m. After that, the team will look to defend their C-USA tournament title. This year’s tournament will be held at Old Dominion.
