MOST COMMENTED


UCLA sophomore Maxwell Griffin, who led the Bruins to big victories over a pair of Top 10 teams last weekend, is the Soccer America Men's Player of the Week.

In a 2-1 victory over then-No. 9 Santa Clara on Friday, Griffin broke a scoreless tie with a goal in the 67th minute, and just 19 seconds later, assisted on teammate Jason Leopoldo's goal that put the Bruins up 2-0.

Griffin, who celebrated his 19th birthday on Sunday, also scored first for UCLA in a 2-0 win over then-No. 8 San Francisco, striking in the 17th minute after receiving a pass from Chance Myers and dribbling between two defenders to take the shot.

Griffin has tallied five goals and 11 points in just seven games, already surpassing his total from last season.
