Marcano earns weekly award as SAA's best offensive player

Senior forward Ryan Marcano of the Oglethorpe men's soccer team has been named the SAA Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in the team's victories over Claremont-M-S and Pomona-Pitzer at Emory's Sonny Carter Invitational.

Marcano got his season off to an outstanding start as the Petrels finished first in the four-team event. The Stormy Petrel forward scored in both games, tallying the opening goal in the team's 2-1 extra-time win over Claremont-M-S and scoring the second in the Petrels' 4-0 rout of Pomona-Pitzer. He fired five total shots over the course of the weekend and put three of them on goal.

He and the rest of the Petrels will be back in action Friday and Sunday. They'll head back to Emory's Woodruff PE Center Friday evening at 7 p.m. to take on the crosstown-rival Eagles. They'll then host Gordon in their home opener Sunday at 6 p.m.
