Boracic Named Player of the Week

Thomasville, NC--Lees-McRae College men's soccer player Berin Boracic has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas Player of the Week during week one in the 2007 season.

The Orlando, FL native has led the Bobcats to a roaring 4-0 start, which includes three road wins, averaging 1.5 goals per game. In an 8-0 romp over Francis Marion to open the campaign, the junior turned in a two goal, two assist performance, resuming his All-Region form from a year ago, and assisting on the game winning goal. In a 6-2 drubbing of UNC-Pembroke Boracic found the net once again before being held scoreless in a 2-1 win over King. He then responded with a three goal, one assist performance on the road against University of Charleston-West Virginia to push his points per game average to 3.75 to start 2007 on a torrid pace.

Boracic' current points per game pace (Points are figured by a combination of goals and assists.) will almost double (67.5) his career high season total set a season ago (34), should he continue to find the net as he has in the Bobcats first four games.

The Bobcats host #15 Clayton State Thursday evening at 7:30pm.
