Webb, Doody named B1G players of the week

Two Indiana men's soccer players have been recognized as Big Ten players of the week this week after a pair of victories over the weekend.

Indiana is off to a 3-0-1 start and with that is coming some early conference accolades.

Patrick Doody and Colin Webb were honored as Big Ten players of the week.

For Webb it’s the second week in a row he has been honored.

Here is the release from IU media relations.

Indiana University senior defender Patrick Doody and sophomore goalkeeper Colin Webb were honored by the Big Ten Conference for their performances this past weekend as IU went 2-0 en route to the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament title.

Doody was named co-Offensive Player of the Week along with Ohio State’s Joao Ehlers, while Webb picked up Defensive Player of the Week honors for the second-straight week.

Doody helped anchor a defense that posted its second and third shutouts of the year with 1-0 wins over Kentucky and Dartmouth, but it was his offense that made the difference against the Big Green. With less than three minutes off the clock against Dartmouth, Doody hit a free kick into the upper right for his first goal of the season and the game winner.

Webb was again solid in goal for the Hoosiers, picking up his second-straight shutout while not having to make a save in the 1-0 win over Kentucky. On Sunday against Dartmouth he made four saves, including a penalty kick stop that kept the Big Green scoreless. Webb has played all 367:59 minutes in goal this season, allowing just one score for a 0.24 GAA.

Doody and Webb were joined by Dylan Lax and Billy McConnell on the Mike Berticelli All-Tournament Team.

Indiana (3-0-1) opens Big Ten play this Saturday as it plays host to the Penn State Nittany Lions (3-0-1) on Jerry Yeagley Field at Armstrong Stadium. Game time is 7:30 p.m. ET.
