VILLANOVA, Pa. - Junior center back William Cason was named to this week's BIG EAST Honor Roll, it was announced today by the Conference.
Cason played a pivotal role in helping the Wildcats improve to 3-0-0 last week. On Aug. 28, he anchored a back wall that kept Stony Brook in check en route to a 4-1 win over the SeaWolves at the West Campus Soccer Complex.
On Saturday afternoon, Cason headed a ball sent into the box off the foot of freshman Sean Sheridan into the net for the only goal of the afternoon in a 1-0 win. He also teamed with Kyle McCarthy and goalkeeper John Fogarty to keep the Raiders off the scoreboard.
This weekend Cason and the rest of the Wildcats play two teams at Penn Park in Philadelphia on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. On Friday night the Wildcats face Hartford at 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday take on Air Force at 1:00 p.m. Admission to both events is free although there is a charge to park a vehicle in Penn Park.
