WATERVILLE, Maine – Coming off another career performance in net for Castleton University, Brandon Myron has picked up his second straight North Atlantic Conference Defensive Player of the Week award, announced Monday by the league office.
Facing 34 shots on net by Curry College during the first 50 minutes of Saturday's match, Myron made 20 saves, once again setting a personal career high that had previously been established just 11 days beforehand with 19 saves at Plattsburgh State. Myron posted a save percentage of .588 against the Colonels, his 12th career match as the Spartan starting goalie with more saves than goals allowed.
Myron is now second in the conference in total saves with 50 as well as third in the league in both save percentage at .543 and goals against average at 15.63. He has been named NAC Defensive Player of the Week four times so far in his collegiate career, twice during the 2017 season and twice so far this year.
In other news, the match scheduled between Castleton and SUNY Potsdam for Tuesday, March 13, has been postponed due to the forecast of a winter storm in the Northeast. The Spartans will now travel to face the Bears Tuesday, April 3, at 7 p.m. in Potsdam, N.Y.
Castleton (0-3) opens a six-match homestand this weekend with the conference opener against Lyndon Saturday, March 17, at 1 p.m., followed by a non-conference contest against Plymouth State Sunday, March 18, also starting at 1 p.m. at Spartan Stadium.
