First-year Nick Sickler (Towson, Md.) of the Goucher College men's soccer team picked the right moment to score his first game-winner of his career on Saturday at Goucher, as his goal late in the second half lifted the Gophers to a 3-2 Landmark Conference win at Juniata.
For his efforts, Sickler has been named the Goucher College Athlete of the Week for the period ending Oct. 7, 2018.
In the Juniata win, Sickler's game-winning strike came in the 82nd minute, as the Gophers came back from a 2-1 halftime deficit to take the 3-2 win. For Sickler, it was his second goal of the season, as he has started all 12 matches on the year for Goucher in his first season in the program.
Sickler and the rest of the Goucher College men's soccer team returns to action on Wednesday, as they host Rosemont in a non-conference match at Beldon Field beginning at 3:30 p.m.
