YORK, PA – York College is proud to announce that
men’s soccer player Cody Pearson has been
named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for the week ending on
Pearson, a junior defender from Crofton, MD and DeMatha Catholic
High School, led the Spartans to a 1-1 week. The resurgent Spartans
dropped a tough 2-1 loss to top-ranked Messiah College on Wednesday
before bouncing back with an impressive 2-0 win over conference
rival St. Mary’s.
Against Messiah, Pearson helped the Spartan defense limit the
top ranked Falcons to just two goals as the Green and White was in
the match for the entire 90 minutes.
Pearson was the key offensive cog on Saturday in the victory
over the Seahawks as he notched a goal and assisted on the second
goal for York.
His first goal came off a nice set piece in the game’s
sixth minute. In the 83rd minute, Pearson lofted a
beautiful corner kick that found the head of Taylor Brummitt who
headed the ball home for the insurance goal. On defense,
Pearson spearheaded a great effort that limited St. Mary’s to
just seven shots in the contest.
For the season, Pearson is tied for the team-lead in goals with
two while he also has two assists for six points, good for second
on the squad.
