Freshman forward Morris nets Pac-12 honors

Oct. 2, 2013, 12:02 a.m.

Stanford men’s soccer freshman forward Jordan Morris was named Pac-12 Player of the Week and was also appointed to Top Drawer Soccer’s Team of the Week after his game-winning performance against UC-Santa Barbara on Friday night.

Morris scored the first two goals of his career in the Cardinal’s 2-1 overtime victory over the Gauchos to lead the team to victory, extending its winning streak to five games and improving its record to 5-1-1. The freshman also leads the team with three assists.

In the Cardinal victory, Morris scored just past the 30-minute mark with a header off of sophomore Aaron Kovar’s corner kick to put Stanford up 1-0. After the Gauchos tied the match at one apiece, Morris came up with the golden goal in overtime with a goal from 25 yards out to seal the victory.

Morris is the second straight Cardinal player to win Pac-12 Player of the Week after senior goalkeeper Drew Hutchins was awarded the honor last week.
