Bodzewski Named CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week

Coast Guard Academy men’s soccer senior Joe Bodzewski has been named the first CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week for the 2013 Fall season for his two-goal performance in the Bears 3-0 win over Southern Maine.

Bodzewski, who was tied for the team lead last season with five goals, scored the eventual game winner just 14 seconds into the second half to break a scoreless tie. He later added an insurance goal in the 83rd minute as the Bears won their only game of the week.

The Bears are off until the weekend when they  will compete in the St. Joseph’s (Long Island) tournament on Saturday and Sunday. Coast Guard will take on New Paltz at 3 p.m. on Saturday in the opening round. The consolation game is at 1 p.m. while the championship game will be played on Sunday at 3 p.m.
