Joshua M. Wilson ’18 selected as NEWMAC Defensive Player of the Week

For the second time in three weeks, the MIT men’s soccer team received NEWMAC Athlete of the Week honors as freshman Joshua M. Wilson ‘18 was tabbed Defender of the Week on Monday. The accolade comes following a successful week for the Engineers, who captured back-to-back contests against Emerson College and Roger Williams University.

Wilson capped the week with four goals – two in each contest. He located the back of the net from outside the box in each match, while also scoring on a penalty kick against Roger Williams and a free kick against Emerson. Wilson also recorded five shots, four of them directed toward net. He now ranks second on the team in goals, but leads the squad in points with 13.

MIT returns to action on Wednesday, September 24 when they travel to Tufts University for a 4:00 p.m. kickoff.
