Bua Named Spartan Athlete of the Week for September 5-11, 2011
YORK, Pa. – York College men’s soccer standout Antonio Bua has been selected as the latest Spartan Athlete of the Week. Bua helped guide the Green and White to a 3-0 week including the title at York’s own Holiday Inn Conference Center Soccer Classic.
Bua notched a pair of outstanding performances over the weekend as he recorded a trio of assists during the Classic.
Against Cabrini in Saturday’s match, Bua provided a tremendous ball to Eric Mackin for the first goal of the contest, a tally that proved to be the game-winner in the 3-0 result.
The final saw the Spartans take on McDaniel as Bua again put together an excellent showing in York’s 4-0 title-winning triumph. Bua and Mackin combined once more to open the match’s scoring in the 20th minute. In the second half, Mike Gill and Bua recorded a double-assist on a Michael Andrei score in the 62nd minute.
Throughout the weekend, the junior was a consistent presence in the attack and proved dangerous on numerous occasions. On the heels of that performance, Bua was chosen as the Classic’s MVP as the Spartans won the championship.
Bua and the Green and White return to action on Saturday, September 17, when they travel to Marymount (Va.) for their first Capital Athletic Conference tilt of the 2011 season.
