QUEENS, N.Y. – After helping the St. John’s University men keep the opposing team scoreless in more than 200 minutes last week, Andrew Withers was named the Big East goalkeeper of the week, as announced by the conference offices on Monday afternoon.
Withers earned his first career goalkeeper of the week award after registering back-to-back shutouts against Hofstra University and Temple University at Belson Stadium.
On Tuesday night against the Pride, Withers tied a season-high with five saves, keeping a Hofstra team that was picked to finish second in the Colonial Athletic Association off the score sheet.
Four days later, Withers turned aside two Temple attempts, earning his third clean sheet of the season.
Withers leads the Big in goals-against average (0.38) and save percentage (.900).
St. John’s welcome the University of California-Santa Barbara to Belson Stadium Tuesday at 7 p.m. (ESPN3 and the Watch ESPN app).
