The Centennial Athletic Conference recognized Haverford College goalie, Sam Miller, for impressive back-to-back performances in the net as the freshman was named the men’s soccer defensive player of the week by the league office, last week.

Making his first two career starts, Miller allowed just one goal in 200 minutes of action in an undefeated week for the Fords (1-0-1).

Miller tallied two saves against Rowan University in Haverford’s 2-1 non-conference victory, and then came through with a standout performance against Muhlenberg to help the Fords earn a 0-0 double-overtime draw in the conference battle with the Mules. Miller’s first career shutout included a huge stop on a Muhlenberg breakaway in the first overtime to preserve the tie.

Haverford (8-3-1) returns to action on Wednesday as it looks to end Rutgers-Camden’s 26-game unbeaten streak that dates back to last season. The Scarlet Raptors were ranked second in last week’s National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division III poll.
