Justin McGeeney earned the first BIG EAST Conference player of the week award of his career on Monday, Sept. 27.

Sept. 27, 2004

Sophomore forward Justin McGeeney has been named co-BIG EAST Player of the Week on Monday, Sept. 27, after scoring the lone goal in #9 Notre Dame's 1-0 victory over Villanova. McGeeney shares the award with West Virginia's Jerrod Smith, who scored the lone goal in the Mountaineer's win over Notre Dame on Thursday, Sept. 23.

McGeeney intercepted a missed clear by Villanova less than a minute into the second half. He controlled the ball, dribbled three times and drilled a low shot into the net for this team-high third goal of the season.

The Irish defense made sure the goal held up and Notre Dame knocked off the first-place team in the league and dealt #21 Villanova its first loss of the 2004 season.

The weekly award is the first of McGeeney's career and second for the Notre Dame team this season. Jack Stewart was named the league defensive player of the week on Monday, Sept. 6.

Notre Dame will begin a five-match homestand on Friday, Oct. 1, when the Irish play host to #12 Boston College. The first place team in the most up-to-date conference standings, the Eagles are 3-1-0 in the BIG EAST and 6-1-0 overall this season. The match will start at 7:30 p.m. after the Notre Dame Football Pep Rally.
