Penn State Men’s Soccer Sweeps Big Ten Weekly Awards
Penn State men’s soccer’s Peter Mangione and Kris Shakes were named the Big Ten Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.
Mangione was named Offensive Player of the Week after he recorded an assist against UNC Greensboro and was able to notch a goal against Maryland. This is Mangione’s first weekly accolade of the season.
Shakes, meanwhile, was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for the third time this season. The Parkland, Florida, native managed a clean sheet in both games and pushed his shutout total to four on the season. Shakes also now has a .872 save percentage on the season, good enough for sixth best in the country.
Mangione, Shakes, and the blue and white will continue their 2023 campaign against Howard at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 27, at Jeffrey Field.
