UNBC goalkeeper Daniel Zadravec has been named U SPORTS men’s soccer player of the week after shielding the Timberwolves' net from 20 goals over two games this past weekend.

The Canada West Soccer Players of the Week displayed incredible defence after making six saves on seven shots over the UBC Thunderbirds on Friday. The 6-foot-2 third-year business student defended all 14 shots faced to draw 0-0 with UBC in game two on Saturday.

The UNBC goalkeeper kept dangerous UBC scorers at bay to help the Timberwolves improve to 6-4-2 on the season, now nipping at the Thunderbirds' heels.
