Goalkeeper shuts out NKU

MACON, Ga. (Oct. 22, 2012) – Redshirt junior Ryan Coulter (Dublin, Ireland) earned his fifth shutout of the season last week against Northern Kentucky, and was named Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

The award is the fourth of Coutler’s two-year Buccaneer career, and his second this season. Coulter’s other A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week selection this season came the week of Sept. 4.

USC Upstate’s Dani Alvarado split the defensive voting with Coulter, also earning this week’s honors.
