This week’s WQAQ Athlete of the Week is Kevin Nunes (Hillsborough, N.J.), a senior Midfielder for the Quinnipiac soccer team. Nunes led the Bobcats to a 2-1 victory over the Vermont Catamounts on Saturday, September 26th, with his first multi point game of his career, keeping Quinnipiac (3-0-4) undefeated on the season.
Nunes assisted on the Bobcats’ first goal, in the 56th minute, with a quick centering pass through two defenders to junior Nick Pelicaen. Nunes followed the assist with the first goal of his collegiate career, a shot into the lower left corner of the net in the 60th minute. The marker proved to be the game winning goal in the contest.
The Bobcats look to stay undefeated when they play an afternoon home game against Robert Morris on Friday October 2nd in Hamden.
