Kyle Deremer of the Creighton men’s soccer team has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week following Creighton’s 1-0 overtime win against Wisconsin on Friday.
Deremer is apart of a defense that now has five shutouts through seven matches while picking up a 6-1-0 overall record. Creighton’s goals against average dropped to 0.69 on the season with the shutout, as the Bluejays posted their third shutout in as many home matches this year.
Creighton opens its Missouri Valley Conference season this Friday night when it plays host to Eastern Illinois. The nationally-ranked Bluejays and Panthers (3-4-0) are set to kickoff at 7 p.m. at Morrison Stadium.
